I agree with Andrew and Owen. For me, I found that once it had moved over the north sea into dark skies, I could star hop to it using binos.  It has a very diffuse appearance which responds to averted vision. I have also used GOTO with my C8 and looked at it with my Televue 32mm plossl. Not an impressive object visually, but there.
