At 100x, from a nebulous edge a smooth and steep brightening to the
nucleus,some of the brighter stars begin to resolve as I shift my eye
around the scene,they are popping in and out of view as the averted
vision picks them up.At 200X, stars more easily resolved but only
briefly as a large thin cloud (not Cirrus more like alto cumulus) came
over, however I was suprised to see that despite the cloud blocking
out the stars for naked eye obs I could still make out the cluster,
clearly demonstrating it's overall brightness.
