I couldn't believe it, but I had found the Leo triplet! M65 was one of the 3, and one of the 2 smaller rounder looking galaxies. What can you say really about a galaxy this magnitude in a small scope in light polluted skies? A small, dim smudge. What made this smudge special though was that it happened to be very close to 2 others...
