Our image shows the central region of the ARA OB1 association, a large star-forming region in the constellation Altar (Ara), consisting of the young open star cluster NGC 6193 and the H-II region NGC 6188 (see also the labeled version of the image below). It also includes the bipolar Wolf-Rayet nebula NGC 6164/65, which is associated with the H-II region.
We have imaged this interesting region with different focal lengths. There you will also find detailed object descriptions.
