Your skills: Intermediate (some years)
Date/time of observation: August 11th 2003, 22.16h
Location of site: Tugare, near Split, Croatia (Lat 43.4 N, Elev 250m)
Site classification: Rural
Sky darkness: 5.0 <Limiting magnitude>
Moon presence: None - moon not in sky
Instrument: 4.5" Homemade Dobson reflector, f/8 ("babydob")
Magnification: 25x, 48x, 79x
Category: Globular cluster
Data: mag 9.0 size 2.7'
25x: Not visible. Two nearby stars with mags 8.9 and 9.4 were barely
visible, so LM in the eyepiece must have been very low.
48x: I think I saw it for a moment, but lost it very soon. Later, I
couldn't find it even with averted vision.
79x: Very faint nebulosity 1'30" in diameter. After some time, I
couldn't see it directly anymore, but with averted vision, it was
visible as very faint fuzzy, 1'45" in diameter.
The cluster was 18 deg above the horizon.
