This delightful open cluster appeared in my wide field of view as a cluster
of medium size. It looks very concentrated and very bright. I were able to
see a dozen or more quite bright stars. To find this cluster I always point
my telescope to Algol and follow the arc of stars with 25, 16 and 12 Persei.
