Pointed the scope to Auriga last evening and pulled down the Messier objects within the borders.
Hope you like them.
A great cluster for eye strain and a headache.
Thanks for taking the time and all comments are most welcome.

Wonderful capture of these three items. IF or when I can get out next I will visit these old friends.

Beautiful captures. These three are always worth a close look on a clear winter night. You handled these with precision and care.

I viewed The Orion Nebula on the same night with the 12" dob and 13mm Nagler, the view was awesome and I'm itching to getting down to sketch it. I know that this single sketch will take me some time, perhaps more than a single night, but it's something I'm looking forward to.

Impressive, all those stars in one sketch. And I rest an all-time fan of your lettering!

Excellent observations of M36/37/38 in Auriga. These are some of my favorite open clusters in the sky. Thank you for sharing them with us all.

Shapes and star population are well described !

Auriga's a happy hunting ground for open clusters, as well as the M-objects there are IC and NGC ones to track down too.
