M38 is an open cluster found in the constellation Auriga.
The M38 Cluster image is my second try on this object. The first one was a few years before and was done under excellent conditions but with less capable gear and very short exposure times. This time around I captured many more stars, mostly due to longer exposure time.

But, in the end I overdid it and the image seems crowded now. Its also a tiny bit out of focus so the stars are sort of bloated too. Better luck next time I guess.
