This colourful image shows the sky around the bright pair of stars 1 Gruis (centre-right, very red) and 2 Gruis (centre-left, bluish-white). Just right of centre the bright spiral galaxy IC 5201 is also visible and many other fainter galaxies are scattered across this wide-field image from the Digitized Sky Survey 2.
