An image of Melnick 34, made with the new Wide Field and Planetary Camera's (WFPC-2) improved optics. With an exposure equivalent to an WFPC-1 image, this WFPC-2 image collects all the light from the central star into sharp focus because the telescope's spherical aberration is corrected by the new camera's optics. The WFPC-2 instrument was installed during the 1993 servicing mission.
