    I should update with M77, as this is another nice binocular Messier's galaxy, easy to hop in.
    Updated yesterday night through the 15x85 and 25x100 binoculars, in spite of annoying light pollution at my SE horizon.

    Happy hunting,

    JG

    I thought m51 and m101 were pretty easy. M74 109 and 77 were hard. M77 looks stellar it's hard to tell if youre looking at it or just a star at low mag. But easy to see through binoculars.
