I am not a very good artist and I this is not a particularly accurate rendition of M38 but I thought I'd share it anyway.
Following Callum's Observer's Challenge for a mini Messier Marathon, I did my own mini mini marathon on 22nd March observing M36, M37 and 38 in Auriga and M35 in Gemini. I followed this up on 23rd March by attempting to sketch M38. I dusted off my equatorial platform so my dobsonian would track the cluster once I had it centred.
When observing the cluster I noticed a little chain of stars to the left of centre in this drawing, and what appeared like a mini big dipper to me just above and to the right of the centre. I took a bit of artistic license in emphasizing this asterism.
