“Diamonds on Black Velvet” is the description often made when first viewing the Perseus Double Cluster through a good quality telescope – and I do vividly recall the impact it made on me the very first time I saw them through a low power telescope.  The only object with a bigger “WOW!” factor (for me at least) is the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules (M13) – a truly amazing sight.
