Omega Centauri
Minimum viewing equipment: unaided eye.

This is a globular star cluster, and it's the finest in the sky. Using a binocular or a telescope you will get much more detail and you will be amazed by the beauty of this cluster, which contains about a million stars of 11th magnitude or fainter.

Note: This is an extended exposure picture taken with specialised equipment and is likely different from what can be seen through an ordinary telescope.
