Position: RA 17:17.1  DEC 43:08
In Hercules, at ~ 6¼° N of pi Her. After having observed M13, the more reduced dimensions of this object are clearly visible. On the other hand, I am always amazed by the brightness of the object, visible with direct vision. M92 does not show a bright core, which is not stellar in appearance. The averted vision does not improve the aspect of the object. Visible E of M92, a pretty chain of 3 stars.
