I observed M1. I had no problem in finding it in my telescope. It is really interesting to think that once I was able to identify it for the first time, I can now easily locate it. Before that I might've spent many days looking straight through it without realizing that a nebula is in my field of view. M1 was easy to find although Moon light had obstructed my view. Less clearer than when I had first seen it.

I think I found M34. It wasn't really bright and evident due to the moonlight. I'll try again another day to confirm this. I also found M50 near Sirius. I tried to locate Uranus, but to no avail.
