NGC 2245: A fan-shaped nebula around a mag. 10 star. The nebula
reaches mostly SW of the star. The brighter (7m?) star nearby
seems also to be a bit nebulous, but the glow is very diffuse
and faint. 

NGC 2247: Quite diffuse. Slightly brighter on the N side with
two eF brightenings suspected E and W of the star. Somewhat
fainter than -45.
