The globular star cluster NGC 6752 in the constellation of Pavo

This chart shows the location of the globular star cluster NGC 6752 in the southern constellation of Pavo (The Peacock). All the stars visible with the unaided eye on a clear and dark night are shown and NGC 6752 is marked with a red circle. 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.
