This pretty open cluster skimmed barely above the treeline. Probably as low as I can get in the southern direction from home. It's in the constellation Puppis and has a little planetary nebula NGC 2438. The cluster is fairly rich with about 150 stars that range from mag 10 to 13. Also nearby is another open cluster M47... which can probably seen in the same field of view with binoculars.
Imaged with the C6-SCT @f6.3 and QHY-8
