About this image

A pretty insignificant looking scatter of mostly 13th magnitude stars. The brightest star is HD23675, magnitude 6.8, without which the visual magnitude of this cluster would drop to 8.8. It has a companion, magnitude 9.9. I’m not sure why this object has been included in the Hershel 400 list.
