Introduction | Map | Own Observations | References

On this page I collect my observations of the open star cluster M 50 in the constellation Monoceros / Unicorn.

 

Introduction

The constellation Monoceros / Unicorn is also one of the constellation that were unknown to me. It contains the open star cluster M 50, according to Stoyan, a brilliant bright cluster, which I can confirm. Stoyan even writes of a "jewel of the winter sky," which is wrongly often ignored.

Size: 20' (Stoyan)
