Zooming in on the star cluster NGC 2100 in the Large Magellanic Cloud

This zoom sequence starts with a wide panorama of the southern skies, including the Milky Way and its two small neighbouring galaxies, the Magellanic Clouds. We zoom in towards the Large Magellanic Cloud and focus on the huge star formation region around the Tarantula Nebula. The final sequence shows a very detailed view, captured with the EMMI instrument on the NTT at ESO’s La Silla Observatory, of the brilliant star cluster NGC 2100 and its colourful surroundings.
