Zoom in onto Trumpler 14

Loading player...

This short sequence zooms in on the open young cluster of stars, Trumpler 14, which was imaged in great detail thanks to the Multi-Conjugate Adaptive Optics Demonstrator (MAD) mounted on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Trumpler 14, inside the Carina Nebula, towards the constellation of Carina (the Keel), is located 8000 light-years away. It is the adaptive optics image that covers the largest area of sky so far.
