An Open Star Cluster
Using a wide field lens, you home in on The Plediades, the 45nd Messier object, M45,
which is located in the region of the sky between Taurus, Perseus and Aries:
You've seen this open cluster with your naked eye and in binoculars, but it
looks a lot better in your telescope.
The above is brought to you by Jupiter Scientific,
an organization devoted to the promotion of
science through books, the internet
and other means of communication.
