Description:
The very dense 2' wide core of M107 is surrounded by a loose halo that extends at 
least 8' wide. The change from core into the loose halo appears significantly 
abrupt. The center does also look irregularly shaped with parts of lesser star 
density. At 342x I could resolve stars right down to the center of M107.
