Very large and bright, almost as M 13 in the same constellation. At
40x I was able to see a dozen of stars, most of them are at the edge,
or very near the cluster. At 100x seen very well, about thirty stars
seen. Nice semicircular row of stars above the cluster, very similar
to one above nearby M 13. Sketch will be available in few days at the
