NGC 2215 -- Open Cluster in Monoceros
The constellation of the Unicorn (Monoceros) lacks bright stars. From my suburban backyard
it appears as a giant visual void in the night sky east of Orion. What it lacks in bright stars it
easily makes up for in Deep Sky Objects. NGC 2215 is just one of the many Open Clusters that
dot the body of the Unicorn. In the 155mm refractor this east-west oriented cluster is pleasing
in the eyepiece and, I believe, far less visited than it should be.
