Weeeee this is fun!
There are around 1,000 stars in this manger/beehive, with the brightest and most massive found near the center. About 300 of these stars are Sun-like, just under 700 are red dwarfs, and the brightest 20-or-so are bright blue A-type stars. Remember, it’s the brightest, most massive stars that burn through their fuel the fastest. This cluster is a little over 500 lightyears away and unlike most Messier Objects, it is better to view it through binoculars (or small telescope) rather than through a large telescope.
