46cm f/4.5 Newtonian, Deep Violet @ 175x
At low magnification a faint unresolved patch, with more magnification it resolves into a very rich cluster of faint stars about 5' across, quite the contrast to M35 seen 30' northwest

46cm f/4.5 Deep Violet
Very rich! dim, just resolved into innumerable stars with slightly higher power, fan shaped with a field of brighter stars for contrast, M35 is just outside the field 23' to the northeast, a line of slightly brighter stars on the west side, rich star field surrounds
