[M75, NOAO]

This image of globular cluster M75 in Sagittarius was obtained at the KPNO 0.9-meter telescope in October 1998. It is an approximately true-color composite; image size is 9.1 arc minutes. The cluster is about 61,000 light years distant and 100 light years across; its overall brightness is roughly 100,000 times that of the Sun.

    [M75 in IR, 2MASS]

    Globular cluster Messier 75 in the infrared light, as photographed by the 2MASS infrared telescopes, and imaged in the 2MASS Atlas. The image field is 6.0 x 6.0 arc minutes. As for all infrared images, this is a false-color image. In this case, different IR wavelength bands were mapped to colors, with the coolest (shortest, farthest IR wavelengths) red and the warmest (longest, nearest to visible) blue.
