    Found a GREAT spot for galaxies last night: the Fornax Cluster. 1380 is fairly bright, I got 1404, 1399, and maybe 1387 all in the same view.

    If you have a larger scope, take a look at Taki's 8.5, map 106, to see galaxies 12.5 or brighter. I think you should be able to get multiple galaxies in other spots

    1316 is the brightest, and there's a couple more right there.

    I forgot about Alan's posts, glad to see and remember them. We have had TONS of clouds here, among other things, and I haven't tried them. I might be able to get some of those.

    1042 and 1052 Cet. 68 x, 10/26/14, 1042 fairly large faint round misty spot. 1052 fairly bright, small, compact oval.

    584, 586, 596 Cet. 68 x, 11/19/14, all three show as fairly bright round spots.

    Fornax Cluster, 68 x 11/20/14, 6 galaxies, 1380, 1379, 1387, 1389, 1399, 1404 All 6 appear as small round or oval shaped. 1380 appears the brightest.

    1400, 1407 Eri. 89 x, 11/24/14, 1400, fairly bright small round. 1407, bright round, small with 2 stars in nucleus area.

    1316, and 1310 or 1317? For., 144x, 1/19/15, 1316 is fairly bright round, bright center and uneven sweeping extensions. 1310 or 1317? small faint round/oval spot below 1316.

    3226/3227 Leo, 89 x , 1/19/15, Both oval faint spots.

    3610 and 3642 UMa, 89 x, 1/20/15, 3610 is oval shaped with central concentration. 3642 is a mottled oval.

    4088 and 4085 UMa, 89 x, 1/26/15, 4088 fairly bright, fairly large elongated oval, mottled extensions. 4085 very faint, small, elongated spot.
