Wide Field Image of the Jewel Box. This image of the well-known NGC 4755 cluster or Jewel Box was taken with the Wide Field Imager (WFI) on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory. It highlights the cluster and its rich surroundings in all their multicoloured glory. The field of view is 20 arcminutes across. The picture is based on images obtained through B, V and I filters.

"This is NGC 4980, a spiral about 65 million light years away or so. Most spirals have well-defined arms, but this one is just… odd. The arms are indistinct, and also fairly asymmetric." - Phil Plait, The Bad Astronomer

This image from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope shows NGC a spiral galaxy in the southern constellation of Hydra. The shape of NGC 4980 appears slightly deformed, something which […]

This image was obtained with the wide-field view of the Mosaic camera on the Mayall 4-meter telescope at Kitt Peak. It shows the northern part of Sh2-260, an enigmatic HII region. The nebula also contains another lobe below the image. What is responsible for its twisted, double-lobed structure is unknown, although it might be related to the giant lambda Orionis molecular right to the east. The image was generated with observations in the B (blue), I (orange) and Hydrogen-Alpha (red) filters.

Close-up of N44C in the LMC. The N44C nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), obtained in January 2002 with the FORS1 multi-mode instrument at the 8.2-m VLT MELIPAL telescope at the Paranal Observatory (Chile). It is based on three exposures through narrow-band optical (interference) filters that isolate the light from specific atoms and ions.

Open Star Clusters M35 and NGC 2158 -- "...near the plane of our Milky Way galaxy, they contain from 100 to 10,000 stars, all of which formed at nearly the same time. M35, on the upper left, is relatively nearby, relatively young at 150 million years old, and relatively diffuse, with about 2500 stars spread out over a volume 30 light years... NGC 2158, is at the lower right... is... over 10 times older, and much more compact with many more stars in roughly the same volume of space."
