Decided to try for this nebula and found it after a few minutes of searching. Smallish and not really faint, and could definitely make out the dumbbell shape.

Took me a bit to find this tiny globular. Very small, but definitely there.
After viewing the Butterfly Cluster, I was surprised at how much brighter and prettier this cluster ended up being. I could easily count over 40 bright stars in a single view, with countless smaller. Gorgeous.

This open cluster was relatively easy to find. Spent a few minutes sweeping across the cluster, couldn't get the full butterfly-ish shape in my FOV. Must get binocs and/or larger eyepieces.

Started the night's viewing with Saturn, then moved to this easy-to-find globular. Small and pretty in my FOV, more diffuse around the edges.
