Noel has just completed the digital image processing of this one taken on Friday 23rd January 2009 from the New Forest Observatory. This is the nice open cluster M38 in Auriga with close-by smaller open cluster NGC1907. Some red emission nebulosity, LBN794 can be seen to the right of the image. The reason I haven’t centralised M38 is that this is one of four frames I want to stitch together of this area. I have three of the frames and hope to get the fourth frame later this year to complete the mosaic.
