NGC 2354ngc2354

Open Cluster in Canis Major
NGC 2354
Mag 6.5

Very faint and sparse Open Cluster, at least in my 12mm eyepiece low down on the Southern horizon just above the trees

This is a new one, I'm observing the members of this large and ragged Open Cluster through the very fine outer branches of the apple tree!
Difficult therefore to get a true feel of its size
Perhaps not the best observing technique, but rather fun, an Eclipsing Open Cluster
