Description

Imaging another open cluster, this time in Carina, the NGC 3532, another cluster with many names, perhaps among those I prefer the Wishing Well cluster, a wish much in need nowadays (double meaning).

Anyway, it looks like a bunch of gems, mostly blue and yellow ones, with the nice red carpet as a background.

Description: Taking part of the background away, to emphasizes more the cluster, both versions have positive aspects, depending on what you focus is or what you want to give more emphasis.
