I have said this before, but I am seeing things lately that I have never seen before, either naked-eye or optical.
Another one is M44 - Praesepe at mag 3.10 in Cancer. This is left of Orion and is a naked-eye open cluster. A real delight in the binos as well. Then if you simply move to the 7 o'clock you come across M67 - another open cluster at mag 6.9. This is easily visible in the binos.
So it suddenly dawned on me that with this evening and the last I can easily get to mag 7 in the binos. and probably further given a moon less night.
