M51 stood right out when I was trying to locate it.  It was very easy to
locate. I could not observe to much detail, however I could definitely
tell that  it was two interacting galaxies.  The color was deep gray, and
it made me feel like if I could just focus a little better  it would
resolve its' wonderful beauty. Overall I was very satisfied.
Thank you
