The Double Cluster

A popular target at this time of year, the Double Cluster lies between Cassiopeia and Perseus. They are clearly visible with the naked eye from our location but their beauty is best exposed through binoculars or a telescope. They lie around 7500 light years away and form the jewelled handle of Perseus’s sword.
