Description:
220X-NGC2419 is an easy fuzzy glowing spot 3'55" East from 7.22v mag star. The central area is round, weakly concentrated with what appears to be 3 faint stars, 2 on the east and the third almost aligned with the center near the western edge of the core. The outer area (Halo) is not well defined, rather with an irregular boundry. There are several stars superimposed on the disc, but appear to be foreground stars as I still cannot resolve the Glob with 540X.
