Position: RA : DEC :
Nice little globular cluster easily found at 59x and not resolved. Bright
core even with it being low in the south sky glow. I raised magnification
to 157x and resolved the stars in the outer halo, but not the central core.
An asterism of stars in the FOV at low power looked like the 4 corner stars
of Orionís body surrounding the globular with the cluster right in the center.
