>This brightest member of A1367 is both easy to see at 70x without any
filter, and is easy to find. The "cornerstone double" points almost directly
at it, at a distance of perhaps 20'. This faintish blob show two or three
distinct "tiers" of brightness, and brightened pretty suddenly within 30" of
the middle. To averted vision at 210x, the halo had a slight elongation in
PA 90o (E-W).

Either you have to update your skill to Intermediate +, or I have to
downgrade mine to Intermediate.
Wow.
