Position: RA :  DEC :
At 48x visible as an almost globular cluster. Going up to 72x was able to resolve 
almost all the stars. The core appears to be almost square set off by a couple of 
dark lanes, and is quite concentrated, whjile outlying regions are less 
concentrated. Few if any field stars. I could count about 50 to 60 stars.
