Zooming in on the bright star cluster Messier 7: This zoom video starts with a view of the central parts of the Milky Way. We zoom in towards the bright constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion) and we see a fuzzy spot close to the tail. This is the bright star cluster Messier 7 and is visible with the naked eye. The final very detailed close up image comes from the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile. Credit: ESO/Nick Risinger (skysurvey.org) Music: movetwo

Panning across the bright star cluster Messier 7: This video pan sequence gives a close-up view of one of the brightest star clusters in the sky. This image from the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory in Chile, shows Messier 7, also known as NGC 6475. Easily spotted by the naked eye in the direction of the tail of the constellation Scorpius (The Scorpion), this cluster is one of the most prominent open clusters of stars in the sky and is an important research target.
