Had a quick look last night around 8:00-8:15PM. I want to get a chance to find M101. It was pretty on the horizon, maybe 22 degrees. I did find it, but got not much more than the central core. It took the 10mm plossl at 60x to verify.
I then moved the scope over to Jupiter, which was even lower in the sky at about 18 degrees. It was just over some trees. I did see some nice cloud bands at 150x, but had to end the session because of a hungry child(bottle time) At least I can check another Messier off the list.
