Messier 47 (M 47)

On this page I collect my observations of the open star cluster M 47 in the constellation Puppis.

 

Introduction

The constellation Puppis is also one of the constellation that were unknown to me, particularly, because it belongs to the southern sky. It contains the two open star clusters M 47 and M 46, which are located so close to each other in the sky that, at low magnifications, they can even be observed together, however, not in the eVscope.
