In hutting for M38 I came across a small dim patch next to two mag 9 
stars. About 1 degree east of M38. After getting several opinions and 
checking the charts we concluded that I found NGC1907 Although this 
object is listed with a mag of 8.2 it is at the limit of my 4" 
achromats seeing ability. It was nothing more than a small light 
patch just to the north west of stars Tycho 2411-1103-1 and 
HD 281143. No individual stars were resolved, just a general brightening
in the area.
