Zooming in on the globular star cluster NGC 6752

The zoom video starts with a wide view of the central parts of the Milky Way and slowly closes in on the globular star cluster NGC 6752 in the southern constellation of Pavo (The Peacock). The final detailed image of the cluster is from the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at La Silla Observatory in Chile. Studies of this cluster using ESO’s Very Large Telescope have unexpectedly revealed that many of the stars do not undergo mass-loss at the end of their lives.
