I saw M67, the cluster near M44 - The Beehive Cluster. I sketched it down in my notebook. After I had come back from the temple, I had tracked down M93 in Puppis. I couldn't actually see the constellation of Puppis, but I got the location with the help of Canis Major and the star Procyon.

M93 is very similar to M67 in Cancer. A small smudge, when magnified shows a lot of stars. Could be mistaken for a nebula in lower magnifications.

Upto now I have seen about 11 open star clusters. I seem to like these smaller compresed star clusters than more large and open ones.
