On this page I collect my observations of the open star cluster M 93 in the constellation Puppis.
The open star cluster M 93 in the constellation Puppis is less known because it appears quite close to the horizon - Puppis belongs to the southern sky. In addition, according to Stoyan, light pollution is very bad for the visibility of the star cluster.
