A lot of cuties have already been mentioned.
How about Ngc 663, 659 and 654 or M103 and Trumpler 1 or even all five in the same wide field of view in Cassiopeia?

Yeah, it seems that galaxies pairs and open cluster pairs are fairly easy to come by. I find the odd pairing to be fascnating, like M13 and NGC 6207. It gives a near-far contrast and a shape/structure contrast that is appealing to me. For the same reason, I like the M108 and M97 pairing.
