M22: Extremely bright and large, the glow just knocks your socks off
when you bring it into the fov. Even at this low magnification, many of
its outer stars are resolved and as you go towards the center, the
peppering of stars is pleasingly evident. It's my favourite globular
viewable from my 42*55' location.
