The Jewel Box
Minimum viewing equipment: binoculars.

The Jewel Box it's a compact star cluster, therefore moderate magnification is a help. The star cluster is shaped roughly like an uppercase A. One of the brightest stars, is a red supergiant.

Note: This is an extended exposure picture taken with specialised equipment and is likely different from what can be seen through an ordinary telescope.
