Introduction | Map | My Own Observations | My Own Photos | References

On this page I collect my observations of the open star cluster M 52 in the constallation Cassiopeia.

 

Introduction

According to Stoyan, the open star cluster M 52 in the constellation Cassiopeia belongs to the richest open star clusters of the northern sky. Karkoschka, on the other hand, characterized it as "many weak stars in the telescope." For me, it was hard to find at the beginning, and there was not much to see (see Karkoschka) - next time, it got better...

Size: 10' (Stoyan)
Distance: 4,600 light years (Stoyan)
Rating: *** (Stoyan).
