BQ Orionis
Observing location
Briga Township, Tabuk, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Canon 6D Camera
135mm Carl Zeiss telephoto lens

Object seen faint on December 28th, 2019, and confirmed faint on January 8th., 2019, at around 9m.4 off the back of my camera. The chart need some revision. There are two distinct binaries in the field that are very obvious that don't seem to show on the chart, though one of them may be located in NGC 2129.
