Zooming in on the globular star cluster NGC 6388

This sequence starts with a wide view of the Milky Way and zooms in on the globular star cluster NGC 6388 in the constellation of Scorpius (The Scorpion). The final images are first from MUSE on ESO's Very Large Telescope in Wide Field Mode and then the last, very sharp, image shows part of the cluster using the MUSE Narrow Field Mode with adaptive optics turned on.
