    I decided to attach my low light video camera, to the end of my 4 ince refractor, as this allows
    me to see fainter.
    While Observing Galaxy 3R sunday morning, I notice it gives a flare every 2 minutes 10 seconds
    give are take a few seconds. Some of the flare were bright, others faint, and some I missed
    I also again noticed, for one of the flares, that it would get bright, grow slightly fainter, then
    bright again.
    So different surfaces casuing it, at least to me.

    I call it a flare, as it last for a few seconds, instead of a quick flash of light, ie a flash.
