I first "discovered" IC 4665 with my 10x50's a couple of years ago while working on my Messier Binocular award.
To me, it always looks like a small representation of the main stars in Orion. The small arc of stars next to the cluster make up the shield and the rest should be obvious once you orient that set.

I much enjoyed looking at the three clusters with my 15x60 when on vacation two weeks ago under mag 6.5 skies. It should have been no surprise given their brightness, but this was the first time I noticed they are also obvious naked-eye objects.

Thanks for the great article, I really enjoyed IC 4756 last night with 11x56mm binoculars! Thanks again and clear skies!
