M93 is the highest numbered open cluster on Messier's list, most of his later additions being relatively faint galaxies. Its shape has been compared to a butterfly or fish. It contains a relatively large number (54) of variable stars. Please excuse the awful picture, it can't be replaced before early 2021 at best...
