Millions and Millions – Omega Centauri with about 10 million stars (cropped view).


This is a photograph of the grand globular cluster Omega Centauri (also known as NGC 5132). The largest globular cluster in the night sky, this southern object is immense – estimated to consist of approximately 10 million stars. Through a telescope you a see a pincushion like appearance of a ball of stars.

A nice feature of this photograph is the variation in star colour shown. Not overdone, but subtly present the variation in colour adds interest to the often monotonic view of Omega Centauri. The stars are sharp and thousands are resolved.

This photograph is a crop for smaller size prints. A wider field view of Omega Centauri is available for larger print sizes.
