Description: I had a hard time finding M10 due to the light pollution in 
the city. Averted vision brought out a very faint smudge of light, like a 
big but dim galaxy viewed under dark skies. No structure whatsoever was 
visible, I saw no brighter central region. 72x - as usual - didn't help in 
seeing more. Actually, the only thing I can say is that I am proud of 
having found it.
