Comments  
M35 an open cluster in the constellation Gemini. The blue stars that make up the cluster are relatively young at around 100 million years. Another open cluster can be seen in the bottom right hand corner, this is NGC 2158 at approx mag 8.6, consisting of much older stars that appear redder in colour.
