This zoom starts with a broad panorama of the brightest and most spectacular parts of the Milky Way. We slowly zoom in on a region featuring the famous Eagle Nebula, but the final object of attention is the star cluster NGC 6604 and its surrounding gas and dust clouds. The final view is a detailed image of the cluster's environment from the Wide Field Imager attached to the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at the La Silla Observatory in Chile.
