True-colour image of the cluster of galaxies, MS1008.1-1224, combined from exposures with the FORS1 multi-mode instrument at VLT UT1, in the four optical bands, B (blue; exposure time 4950 sec; image quality 0.60 - 0.85 arcsec), V (green; 5400 sec; 0.50 - 0.75 arcsec), R (red; 5400 sec; 0.45 - 0.75 arcsec) and I (near-infrared; 4050 sec; 0.45 - 0.75). Two small areas were masked because of two bright stars. The field measures about 7 x 7 arcmin 2. North is up and East is left.
