Auriga Salt and Pepper
A beautiful Open Cluster, fantastic in 25mm and 12mm where it fills the eyepiece with pinpricks of light, resolved as tiny dots which are really dense in the central area, perhaps a quarter of the FOV in 12mm

Beautiful, even in a washed out sky with the moon one day before full
There is a bright yellow/orange pinprick of a star in the Clusters centre
