Zooming in on Star Cluster Terzan 5

It is astonishing to me how zooming in just keeps going and going. Space is incredible!!

Taken from here at Hubble Space Telescope
This sequence takes the viewer from a wide view of the Milky Way to the central regions, where many bright star forming regions and star clusters can be seen. The final view is a close-up of the sky around the star cluster Terzan 5 taken with Hubble, the Very Large Telescope at ESO’s Paranal Observatory and the Keck Telescope.
