NGC 1907: Open Star Cluster (Auriga) RA: 05h 28.7m / DEC: +35° 51'.3
Instrument: 10-inch Starfinder

Although my drawing is dominated by M38, our focus is on NGC 1907. This little star cluster is located 32' due south of the larger Messier cluster. M38 os ofset just north of center in the drawing, which presents a 36X view in my 10-inch reflector. Lynga lists a size of 21' and a population of 100 stars for M38. NGC 1907 is visible as a small fuzzy patch just inside the southern edge of the field. Lynga describes it as 6' in diameter and having an integrated visual magnitude of 8.2.
