Another one from Vela . It´s overshadowed by ic 2391 on the same field on the finder. But is a beautiful cluster. Very delicate . As long as i see it more stars i solve. Unfortunately was pretty late when the skies clear so i draw it for few minutes. i think it will give u a glimpse of it.

Nice observation. But personally I don't like the big circle. It takes away the attention from the sketch.

Nuncius,

An excellent observation of an interesting cluster in Vela. Your observations allow us Northern Hemisphere observers to appreciate the southern DSO's.

Nuncius,

Very nice sketch. As Carlos has said above, this is one way for us to see the views in Vela. :) :bow: :rainbow:

Frank :)
