STARS and STAR CLUSTERS - Collections of stars.  A double star can either be a pair of stars gravitationally bound to each other or may be an optical double (a pair of stars aligned closely through our line of sight but otherwise unrelated).  Open Star Clusters range from groupings of several dozen to many thousands of stars.  Globular Star Clusters are huge balls of 50,000 to 500,000 stars gravitationally bound to each other.
