Messier 52
(also known as M52 or NGC 7654) is an open cluster in the Cassiopeia constellation. It was discovered by Charles Messier in 1774.
Due to interstellar absorption of light, the distance to M52 is uncertain, with estimates ranging between 3,000 and 7,000 light years. One study identified 193 probable members of the cluster, with the brightest member being magnitude 11.

Messier 52 is estimated to be about 35 million years old. (Wikipedia)
