15/04/13
Less easy to spot
1st quarter moon bright enough to cast shadows

20/04/15
Sits neatly just outside a tidy asterism of a bright triangle of three stars of Mags 10.25, 10.75 and 11.45
No real feel of shape and not quite in same 12mm FOV as M96

31/03/16
Could not compare with M96 in 12mm, observed just before it, as 12mm eyepiece completely dew'd up!
Faint in 18mm with no hint of shape, just over a FOV away from M96 and two FOVs away from the Leo Triplet, M65, M66 and NGC 3628
