This broad panorama of the Carina Nebula, a region of massive star formation in the southern skies, was taken in infrared light using the HAWK-I camera on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Many previously hidden features, scattered across a spectacular celestial landscape of gas, dust and young stars, have emerged.

The research paper is “Deep wide-field near-infrared survey of the Carina Nebula”, Preibisch et al. 2011, available via ESO.
