In Gemini, at ~¾° NW of 1 Gem. This is an open cluster of very reduced size, with the result that all that I can observe is a double star at the spot of NGC 2129. In spite of an attentive observation during a few minutes, no nebulosity appears at my binoculars and all that remains visible is the double star, of which I am unaware of the identity. A second double star is visible at a few minutes NNW of NGC 2129, and whose principal star names TYC 1864-564-1.
