Description

I had already observed this asterism with binoculars in Canis Major, and I was impatient to see what this asterism was going to give in photography. This is the famous triangle of which some authors speak: Messier 41 - the star Sirius - the star Nu² Canis Majoris.

On astrometry, Messier 41 is "NGC 2287" and star Nu² Canis Majoris is "v 2CMa".
