M35 is a beautiful open cluster in Gemini, and visually a stunning sight in telescopes of all apertures. It is a fairly typical young open cluster containing mainly blue stars. In the same field, but over 10 times further away is the very old open cluster NGC 2158, whose elder members shine mostly yellow and red.
