What You Should See:

Although relatively few stars are resolved in big binoculars, this is a large, bright cluster with many stars that are too faint to be seen but which contribute to the nebulous glow. It is a curiosity in that, at an estimated 4 billion years old, it is older than usual for an open cluster.
