using the setting circles (Muskokas)

The apparent diameter of the Andromeda Galaxy, M31, fills the entire field at 70x, i.e. the 26mm eyepiece. Messier 31.

Used the setting circles to examine the open double clusters of Perseus. [ed: Also known as Caldwell 14. The individual objects are NGC 869 and 884.]

Also looked at the Pleiades. Messier 45 (M45)
