Object Type: Open Cluster
Location: Barcelona – Spain
Easy for small telescopes and binoculars, Stock 2 is a wide open cluster situated in Cassiopeia. Is a good target after a visit to the famous Perseus Double Cluster. Don?t forget STTA 26, a double star with twins components (yellow and white) in the same Stock 2 field of view.
