Re: (IAAC) Can I see the "Stephan's Quintet" with my 8" SCT?

Never second-guess yourself, Tom! Don't ever hesitate to "call 'em like you see 
'em"... And if it turns out you were actually looking at some other object than 
you thought one night, or were just using "averted imagination", don't be 
ashamed of it - you would not be the first of us! :)
Also, no one can (yet) say for sure exactly what a dark sky, a good instrument 
and enough patience may show you...
Clear skies!
