I found the object with my digital setting circles. It was VERY faint
due to light pollution and moonlight. The UHC didn't improve the
visibility very much. M1 filled 1/5th of the field of view in my 26mm
Plossl and I had a bad time trying to describe the shape of the
object. It was way too faint to do so.
