Wow, even with my awful 4.2mag skies, M92 looked great last night!! I love how
the bright core has chains of bright stars forming a circle around it. Nothing
beats looking deep into a GC at high power. At 310x, it was
fantastic peering into the multitudes of stars close up. The contrast
 between fainter stars in the Halo sprinkled with brighter "chain" stars
 was a sight to behold!!
