Highlights from the VST image of Omega Centauri

This montage shows nine small cutouts from the VST image of Omega Centauri. Although each of them only shows about 0.3% of the full image they are still richly detailed and display the exquisite image quality of the telescope and camera. The upper left panel shows the core of Omega Centauri, where stars are at their densest. The cutouts are then taken from regions of decreasing stellar density and those from the outer parts show many faint galaxies far beyond the cluster.
