At ~10° N-E of Sirius. Object of very low brightness. I am not able to observe stars individually. NGC 2374 takes simply the aspect of a very thin fuzzy spot. At the S-W portion of the cluster, I observe a double star slightly luminous. Per moments, I have a have the felling of a cluster in only one star alignment in an axis  NE - SW.
