Took the Jason 313 60mm out in the backyard last night - the first clear moonless night in a month! Even under not-quite mag 5 skies, the Jason performed well in snagging spring Messier galaxies. The 0.965 eyepieces used were: 30mm, 22mm & 18mm kellners and a 12.5mm Celestron Ultima.
M65/66: M66 was much more obvious, but AV brought out the elongation of M65
M105: Pretty obvious with AV
M96: Super tough; took multiple attempts considering there are essentially no guide stars in the vicinity
M67: One of my favorites clusters in the 60mm
M87: Obvious with AV, but invisible without it. Nice at 50x (18mm)
M84/86: Super tough with M86 being a bit more obvious & M84 only popping out occasionally.
M85: Good guide stars in the vicinity pinpointed its location - not as easy as M87 but easier than M96, M84/M86
M99: Super tough, only popped out occasionally with AV.
M104: The easiest "new" galaxy with the Jason
M94: Needed an easy object; the brightest galaxy of the night
M3: Visible in the reflex finder. Round, bright, like most Messier globulars, with a hint of graininess at 75X
Also tracked down NGC2903 in Leo and tried but failed with NGC 4490 in Canes. Can't say if the optics of the Jason are top notch, but the scope is easy to set up and use, and it seems to do well on DSOs.
