This is a picture of a star cluster near the center of M82. M82 is also known as NGC 3034 or the Cigar Galaxy it is quite a popular target for astronomy studies and also just to photograph because it is visually striking.
Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
