I like this field very much: gentle arches of bright stars are pointing at M 35 in which dozens of tiny stars are twinkling. M 35 is very dense with this enlargement therefore I cheated a little bit: I drew some stars in the center of the cluster with 48x enlargement. NGC 2158 can easily be seen in the field but without any resolution. Its core is perhaps a little inhomogenious. The third open cluster, IC 2157 is an obvoius sight as well - with two stars superimposed on it.
