SH021 – The Different Types of Star Clusters

In Episode SH021 of Star Hopping…

We’ll be presenting another Star Hopping “Extra”: we’ll discuss the different types of Star Clusters that you can find in your telescope, how they might appear in your eyepiece, and explain the differences between them.


So this episode is a Star Hopping Extra – a discussion we can have while we wait for more interesting targets to rise up from the Eastern horizon. As Spring is fast approaching, a new type of deep sky object will replace the many galaxies that we have been seeing; These are the most numerous type of deep sky object: Star Clusters. Clusters can appear in three main configurations, and they are:

  • Open Clusters,
  • Clusters with Nebulosity,
  • and Globular Clusters
