Open cluster trio (astrosclerosis)

I was a little bit busy during the night of December, 30th and I have been looking for quick 2-3h frame. The M38 cluster in Auriga and its surroundigs has been choosen. Then, few days later during image processing I realized that I pictured exactly the same area one year ago  Young and old clusters. And carbon star.. Bummer. Only difference is I pictured it now with different telescope – TS130/910. One year ago it was 6″ newton.
So here it is RGB 3x10x5 minutes:

There is alco NGC1907 cluster at the bottom, and Czernik 21 open cluster at upper right, at the and of faint red nebulosity (that is Sharpless 230).

Clear skies!
