Excerpts from a view of the Prawn Nebula from ESO's VST

This collection of excerpts shows close-up views of some of the strange and spectacular features in the glowing jumble of gas clouds making up a huge stellar nursery nicknamed the Prawn Nebula. Taken using the VLT Survey Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory in Chile, this may well be the sharpest picture ever taken of this object.

This image also contains information from images of this object taken by Martin Pugh.
