Guided Canon Rebel XTi with an 85mm Nikkor lens @ f/5.6; 3 minute exposue at ISO 800.
Here are three fine Messier objects all "clustered" together in Auriga: M36, M37, and M38. Open clusters all, these winter sparklers are an easy target with binoculars, and resolve well in scopes as small as 4 inches in diameter.
