M29 is a small, coarse group of stars in the constellation Cygnus. It is located about 7,000 light-years from Earth. The cluster contains only six stars with a magnitude brighter than 9.5, which form a small, stubby dipper in the center. This is not a very impressive object when viewed in binoculars or small telescopes. Larger instruments will be needed to resolve the fainter stars in the cluster.
