NGC752 - Open cluster in Andromeda
Open cluster in Andromeda
  • Description: This is a large, naked-eye open cluster between Andromeda and Triangulum. 60 stars in a 49 arc minute field make this a great binocular object.

Even with the smoke, if you look carefully there are at least a half dozen faint galaxies in this field. But they are VERY small!
