Description:
Jewel box sky tonight. Hopped M37, M36 to M38 and at x80 (12.5mm) got a
small pair in the NW from M 38 in the same field, the pair about mag 7.
In the pair to the left (SW) at x158 (6.3mm)I resolve NGC 1907 
`5 diameter) in a hazy mass or gelatinous blur a bit smaller than the
pair (but the stars in 1907 were blurred, practically unresolvable. 
A rough count was five.
