I have uploaded my sketch of M35 here.

To me the cluster seemed assembled around a framework of brighter stars arranged in an elongated triangular asterism. Several members appeared yellow / orange, not depicted in my drawing. The cluster seemed to have an odd void in the centre, very distinctly noticeable as I plotted stars.

I tried for about 30 minutes for NGC2158, but on this night it was out of range of my 4" scope, eyes, and sky conditions.

Ian - that is a very good sketch indeed. I have a image taken with my 6 inch refractor and DSLR, looking at the two
I can see how well you did at the eyepuce.

Very nice Ian.

As all can see with your sketch, it is a worthwhile target and interesting in the way the stars are positioned from our point of view.

Frank :)

Ian,

An excellent observation of M35. This is one of my favorite open clusters. Thank you for sharing with us all.

Carlos
