Similar to NGC 2264 a very fine cluster. I saw 6 quite bright stars in an
almost rectangular shape surrounded by a few fainter stars. I didn't see the
associated nebula, but perhaps I would have seen it if I had used a filter.
My cluster description: very bright, medium to large size, well resolved,
