So far all of my star gazing has been pretty much confined to the wonders found in Orion and Canis Major. My last goal in Canis Major is NGC 2362. After that it is time for me to challenge myself. I want to find something that is away from a major star, so I thought I would try to find NGC 2244 in the Rosette Nebula. Does anyone have any helpful star hopping hints to find this? All I can figure is look where a line drawn from Alhenna in Gemini intersects a line drawn from Betelgeuse to Procyon. Thanks in advance for the help.
Well boys, we got three engines out, we got more holes in us than a horse trader's mule, the radio is gone and we're leaking fuel and if we was flying any lower why we'd need sleigh bells on this thing...
