****** ENG: The night of Jan 11th, 2019 has been really fruitful. My primary target was a long exposure of M97 & M108, but waiting for them to rise well above the horizon, I spent one hour (6x600") on each of the big Messier open clusters in Auriga. The three images have very similar postprocessiong, and obviously very "uniform" data. Same night, sema camera, same exposure time. So... differences between the clusters are "real" :-). By the way, M37 (and M11) are my favourite open clusters!

****** ITA: la notte dell'11 gennaio 2019 è stata davvero produttiva. Il mio bersaglio principale era una ripresa di M97 e M108, ma mentre aspettavo che si alzassero, ho ripreso per un'ora ciascuno (6 pose da 600") M36, 37 e 38, i tre bellissimi (e molto diversi tra loro!) ammassi in Auriga. Le tre immagini hanno un processo simile, e quindi sono ragionevolmente "uniformi".
Per inciso, M37 (con M11) sono in miei ammassi aperti preferiti!
