M101 Spiral Galaxy Ursa Major 7.9 / 22' Tried to find 8/5/11, think I was looking in the right place, possibly saw largish VERY FAINT patch barely brighter than background sky but could not confirm. Further reading suggests this is a very hard target and really needs to be observed from a dark site. Try again spring of '12, possibly not form backyard. Chart | Sketch
M106 Spiral Galaxy Canes Venatici 8.4 / 19'x8' Tried to find 8/5/11. Likely just too low in the sky, washed out by skyglow. Try again spring of 2012, possibly from a darker site. Chart
M053 Globular Cluster Coma Berenices 7.6 / 13' Wait till spring 2012 Chart
M064 Galaxy Coma Berenices 8.5 / 9.3'x5.4' Wait till spring 2012 Chart | Sketch
Reference: M13 - 5.8 / 20' | M71 - 8.2 / 7.2'
