(1) My main objective was to obtain a high quality, high definition video of the event using a Megrez 72 telescope and a Canon EOS 550D DSLR working in 1920x1080 video mode at 25 frames per second.
M40 is positioned 1.4[degrees] northeast of Delta ([sigma]) Ursae Majoris, also known as Megrez. You shouldn't have too much trouble finding it in 10x50 binoculars, but even my 15x70s don't cleanly separate the 9.7- and 10.1-magnitude component stars - they're just a little too faint and too close for a definite split.

With the right eyepiece, you can get 3.3[degrees] (Megrez 66 APO) to 4.8[degrees] (Mini Borg 60) of true field--something that's simply not possible with longer-focal-length scopes equipped with 1 1/4-inch focusers.
