Panning across the R Coronae Australis region

This pan shows many details in a gorgeous cosmic watercolour of the star-forming region around the star R Coronae Australis that was captured by the Wide Field Imager (WFI), on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESO’s La Silla Observatory. Fine details of the bluish reflection nebula and the huge surrounding dust cloud are visible. This star-forming region is located some 420 light-years away in the small constellation of Corona Australis (the Southern Crown).
