Description:
M 31 is spectacular as usual, M32 is a small, hazy disk, and M 110 is just the faintest of smudges in the EP. Not more than any one of these objects in visible in the FOV at one time. Although I know that the 2 satelites are located immediately adjacent to M31, there was no sign of this visible when I had either of the 2 lesser opjects in the EP.
