M45 try to locate nebulosity, wide dispersed cluster cannot get all in
FOV can detect 50+ stars. Primary Stars very bright, lots of cloud
coming in to much cloud to detect any nebulosity however with all this
cloud I could be mistaken even if I saw it is best viewed through
bino’s however it is nice to slew across this cluster.
