The newly identified cluster

Colour-composite image of the newly discovered globular cluster candidate FSR 1735 in the inner parts of the Milky Way. The cluster is the circular regions of stars and enhanced brightness in the centre of the image. The image is based on data obtained through three near-infrared filters (J, H, and K), for a total exposure time of 225 seconds per filter. The SofI instrument on ESO's NTT was used. The image size is about 5 x 5 arcmin. North is up and East is to the left. The final image processing was done by Henri Boffin (ESO).
