Bright and very dense GC of approx 5' size. At 342x I could resolve a
few very faint stars around the edge of the cluster. The center did
remain unresolved even though it appeared granular. Nice bright
globular that must be huge but very far from the us. The brightest
stars are registered with mag 15,1.
