Gems of Perseus

Object Name Messier 34 in constellation Perseus
Object Type Open Cluster
Location Tiszaújváros, Hungary
Date 30.10.2010
Media sketch: graphite pencil, final drawing: felt tip pen
My first open cluster-drawing with a felt tip pen.
I used a 80/400 achromatic refractor, with a magnification of 66x. The size of the field is 52′
This quite neglected cluster reminds me of the Owl-cluster, because of the two brigter stars at the cetre.

  1. Árpád,

    Very nice sketch of M 34. Never thought of this open cluster the way you describe it. I’m going back to take another look. Thanks.
