At 30x, it doesn’t look round, more like a triangle.  4 stars form a square to
the right, 3 stars to the left.  At 60x, count 6 outer stars.  Best view at 
110x, 5 stars in the core, lots more with averted vision, core looked loose.  
146x same view as 110x.  176x same view and just fit FOV.  220x still fit FOV 
but now dimmer.  Partial resolution at 146x, 176x and 220x.
