Well, even though I know my field of view is way too wide for this target, I thought I'd shoot it anyway. M74 (The Phantom Galaxy) holds a special place in my heart because from my house (Bortle 5) with my old 12" Dob I couldn't see it, but when I got the 16", I could. I was one of those objects that really stood out for me because with the aperture upgrade it brought this object (and many others of course) to my viewing at home.
