This M34 cluster was captured from my back garden is London.
The cluster contains nearly 100 stars, including 19 white dwarfs and a number of double stars (the most prominent of which is h1123 in the center region of the cluster). White dwarfs are stars with an initial mass of up to 8 times the mass of our Sun (about 95% of all stars) that collapse when diminishing fuel is inadequate to produce fusion reactions sufficient to offset the inward and inexorable force of gravity
