With Skysafari you can search using SAO , HD , Struve and STT and β ( Βurnhams) etc etc. I tend to make a list in advance and get that out of the way. Lists include difficult ones , colours , multiples etc. Both Interstellaruim and the Cambridge are great for hitting one constellation at a time. 

Its been really hit and miss with not only forecasts , but thin high clouds. Naturally achros can make the best to observe achievable targets , being "proper " scopes !

I did not know you could search SAO on sky safari, oh I am going to be hammering them next time I go out. 

I have a list for Leo but I am going have to find a site to look at them as its getting more south now where I cannot see it from my backyard.

I will check with stellarium whats in the East and North write some more lists.
