Sure hope so, our system is shorter focal length and spring is not target-rich for those objects.....

Hi all:

Barnard (B) 34 is a small dark nebula in Auriga, a little under 2 degrees west of M37.  Unlike many of the Barnard dark nebulae that obscure the stars, this one is more like a thin veil over the background stars:
