    I can't see the "eyes" in M97, the Owl Nebula either. However, it is a nice little planetary.

    M105 is a fairly "stand out" galaxy, but it sits higher above M95 and M96 than what I initailly believed it would. Once you see it, you can see why it made the Messier list, even though Charles Messier didn't include it himself.

    I had to tend bar last night, but this incredible string of clear weather leads me to believe that I can get out to the Flatin Farm hayfield tonight. It is great to see so many posts to the forum by our cadre of very active observers. Kudos to Jeff to show the birdwatchers some basic astronomy and get their interest piqued in our beloved hobby. I bet they show up to a meeting.
