I'm surprised that I've not observed M108 before now
Easy to locate just two FOVs away from Merak, B UMa in 25mm
Just discernible in the haze of an evening of very poor seeing as an elongated smear close to HIP 54584 at Mag 8.90

 05/07/15
Very faint haze with no feel of shape in 12mm in a hazy, not quite dark sky
Not the best evening to be observing Galaxies
Three FOVs from the Mag 2.30 star Merak, B UMa
