138X - NGC6106 is almost undetectable in the 30CM at 138X. There is a string of
3 brighter stars and the galaxy forms a near isosceles triangle with the 2
eastern most stars being the base and the galaxy the apex. The halo is a faint
amorphous glow at both 138X and 254X with the core being very weak, but
elongated. Averted vision is a little help, but not much better than direct
