Head over to the Anchorage Memorial, which you can easily access by traveling to Tepid Sewers and going west from there. Check your local map to find the exact location of the entrance and enter the lair. It should say: Anchorage Memorial Facility.
It helps if you have a Sneak Boy and a decent Sneak Skill, but you can always do multiple attempts if you want to complete the optional part too, which excludes the killing of any Mirelurks.
Head straight downstairs and around the corner. Before you open the door, now is an excellent time to put on a Stealth Boy. If you follow the instructions to come, you should be able to perfectly use the 2 minutes of stealth that you are granted.
Sneak, and open up the door. Quietly sneak to the north, ignoring the Mirelurk, and take a right (east) through the door leading to an area called Anchorage Memorial Facility Bay. Head to your left, then right again and basically circle around the center, but stick to the outer walls until you get to some stairs leading down (south).
Head down and go around the corner. A Mirelurk will be lurking (what else?) in the nearby distance. Cautiously sneak towards him but take a left (west) on the bridge. Here, look on your right for some steps down into the water. Once in the water, look for a Mirelurk Egg Clutch on your left, and place the Observer.
With your objective completed, the only thing that rests for you to do is to get the hell out of this place. Backtrack the way you came. It's likely that around halfway your Stealth Boy runs out. You should be able to just make a run for the exit and be done with it either way. Head back to Megaton to report on your findings.
