Astrophoto Friday: MWC 1080

This week's Astrophoto Friday image is of the young, massive star known as MWC 1080.

The image was taken with the 200-inch Hale Telescope armed with adaptive optics by Stanimir Metchev.

The image reveals fine details of the cluster of young stars that surround MCW 1080 and the nebula that they have formed from.
