Description: H and Khi Persei. About everything worth saying is
said about this pair. One of the most impressive sights of the
sky in good conditions and beutiful even in mediocre weather
like this. NGC 869 is more compact and includes a very high
density clump near the core. In a very rich field. After many
months I got bad enough weather to draw these clusters :-)
