Wide-field view of the newly discovered globular cluster VVV CL001

This wide-field image of the very rich region around the newly discovered globular cluster VVV CL001 and its brighter companion UKS 1 was created from photographs taken through blue, red and infrared filters and forming part of the Digitized Sky Survey 2. The globular star clusters are close to the centre of this picture, but are almost totally invisible in this view. The field of view is approximately 2.8 degrees across.
