M35 is a wide open cluster at 9x. It is impossible to separate the cluster but I can see a lot of bright stars in the middle of it. Many of these stars form a reversed trapezium.
NGC 2128 is just south of M35. Smaller, the approximate size is ¼ the size of M35. Impossible to separate stars. It reminds me M67 but fainter.
