Melotte 25, Collinder 50, Caldwell 41
Sharing the constellation of Taurus with M45, the Hyades are an easy find, forming the head of the bull. They are visible even with the unaided eye, though less stars are visible. The unaided eye gives the best view as this cluster is generally larger than the field of view of either binoculars or telescopes.
