Open Cluster in Puppis
NGC 2437
Mag 6.1




23/01/14
The richer but much less bright Open Cluster in the pair with M47, just out of each others FOV in 25mm
A dense mass of stars between 10th and 13th Mag which form a beautiful pincushion in 12mm
Within the cluster, at least visually, is the Planetary Nebula NGC 2438
