Zooming into the Helix Nebula

This zoom sequence starts with a wide-field view of the rather empty region of sky around the constellation of Aquarius. As we close in we can see the faint ring shape of the Helix Nebula (NGC 7293), one of the closest planetary nebulae to the Earth. In the final sequence we see a new image of the Helix taken in infrared light with the VISTA telescope at ESO's Paranal Observatory in Chile.
