Here are some open clusters in Auriga...

I have processed two separate images one of M37 and one of M38. M37 is the richer cluster of the two so I attached a mid sized thumbnail of M37. Full sized images and processing details are at:


The scope is a C8 with f/3.3 focal reducer and ToUcam SC3 camera.

Great Toucam shots, Jim. I can see a f/3.3 reducer in my future. Full size images are very impressive, as well as your processing routines.

Keep up the good work!
