Iota Cancri is one of the colourful winter Albireo contenders.

Hinds Crimson is a deep red carbon star, in Lepus , below Orion.4″ aperture will give you lots of colour.

Zeta Cancri is the wonderfully bright Tegmine. Use Some aperture and magnification to split open the triple.

Ngc 2301 is in Monoceros, a lovely cluster “Hagrid’s Dragon”. It’s wings and head fill out under darker skies .

Don’t forget M67 and M44,

Nick.
