Under a decent sky my TAK FCT-100 equipped with a 9mm NAGLER (71 x combined with 1 degree fow) shows this trio beautifully framed and quite contrasty. A sight comparable to the M 81/82 duo!

Saw the "Leo Trio" from a dark site with an 8" Dob using a 32mm Pl. It occupied the entire field. The triplet includes M64 & 65 arranged like an "=" sign. The third is slightly dimmer and perpendicular to the M objects. 64 & 5 are reasonably easy to find. The third one can be found after the others are located.
