Zooming in on the star cluster NGC 6193 and nebula NGC 6188

This zoom sequence zeros in on a region of gas and dust in the constellation of Ara. In the centre of the final image from the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory is the young open cluster NGC 6193, and to the right is the emission nebula NGC 6188, illuminated by the ionising radiation emitted by the brightest nearby stars.
