Auriga cluster

Well here's what happened lol

I went out to grab some images of the moon and had some time left over so remembering the location of a nebula I had seen online, I swung my scope to Auriga with the intention of capturing the flaming star nebula, I found this open cluster and thought ah huh, this is it, I spent 35 mins collecting star data then came indoors to process, I couldn't believe how faint the 'flaming star neb' was so I tracked it down in a star altlas only to find I had completely missed the nebula, this cluster actually lies between the two brighter patches of gas lol......I liked the resulting image though so kept it, I am going back for another attempt soon I hope.
