|M67: Open Star Cluster (Cancer) RA: 08h 51.4m / DEC: +11° 49'.0|
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder
M67 plays the ugly stepsister to nearby, magnificent M44. It is located 8.2 degrees south-southeast of the Beehive. The closest bright star is 4.3 magnitude Alpha Cancri, 1.7 degrees due east. M67 features a lone 6th magnitude star surrounded by a host of 10th through 13th magnitude stars. My drawing records 25 stars in the cluster and another 30 field stars as framework.
