134X-NGC3107 appears very faint, requiring averted vision and then I see only
fleeting glimpses. The bright star, 7.8p mag and the bright sky background make
observing this object almost impossible. The UHC filter darkens the background,
but the nearby (1.9') star overwhelms any dark adaptation.
254X-NGC3107 Not detected.
(I must report this object as unconfirmed with the 30CM SCT and current sky
