ArTeMiS’s View of the Cat’s Paw Nebula NGC 6334

In this zoom sequence we start with a spectacular wide-field view of the Milky Way Galaxy, centered on the constellations of Scorpius and Sagittarius. As we close in on the Cat’s Paw Nebula (NGC 6334) we shift to the view from the VISTA survey telescope, observing in the infrared part of the spectrum. And finally we add a new view of the region taken at submillimeter wavelengths using the new ArTeMiS camera on the APEX telescope.
