This spectacular panoramic view combines a new image of the field around the WolfRayet star WR 22 in the Carina Nebula (right) with an earlier picture of the region around the unique star Eta Carinae in the heart of the nebula (left). The picture was created from images taken with the Wide Field Imager on the MPG/ESO 2.2-metre telescope at ESOs La Silla Observatory in Chile. This image is available as a mounted image in the ESOshop. #L
