No moon tonight, so a good time to try this faint object. It was surprisingly tricky to sketch and I had to be patient until it got good and high. Here is my drawing of the star cluster and associated nebulosity:

I think the ID is wrong -- Corwin and other sources identify NGC 2409 as a different star cluster Bochum 4.

 

A better ID is RCW 7.
