range of magnitudes which neatly fill the FOV of a 12mm
unresolved hazy patches between the brighter resolved stars.
Large, richly populated with a range of stars, the brightest a
yellow star of Mag 7.4

5 Gem, HIP 29379 at Mag 5.8 just creeps into the FOV as it's
In 12mm the central, dense region fits nearly perfectly
Easily visible in binoculars and finderscope, a real gem, like

Some really interesting colour contrasts among the brighter
stars, especially in 25mm where the FOV appears as a dark
canvas with coloured dots on it
