I got to use a friend's I3 Eyepiece which really brought this cluster popping out in my light polluted skies. The cluster has a nice range of stellar magnitudes and is nicely distinct from the background stars of Cassiopeia.

I like it. It's always nice to grab something even though light pollution is present.

Randolph,

It looks great. As the magnitude goes up the background usually darkens. I like that open cluster sketch.

Frank :)
