Easily found small cluster, near M38 in Auriga.
At 49X a small misty patch of light with a hint at resolution, at 98X
this is a small round cluster with a dozen or so stars resolved and a 
background of unresolved stars.
There is one fairly bright star near the middle. 
I counted 15 to 20 stars at high power.
There is a sketch on this object on my homepage: URL mentioned below.
