NGC 6334 (also known as the Cat's Paw Nebula, Bear Claw Nebula and Gum 64) is an emission nebula located in the constellation Scorpius. It was discovered by astronomer John Herschel in 1837, who observed it from the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa.

The image was taken remotely with the AP 305mmF8 Mak-Cass astrograph located at Las Campanas observatory in Chile.
