M3 is beautiful globular cluster. When I first saw him som 6 months ago in 76/700 relfector it was just grainy, gray ball of ligth. Now, thru the 200mm scope it is superb sight. 
Using 32mm eyepiece, I saw grainy ball. Then I switched to 6mm eyepiece and the cluster was almost 80% resolved. Fantastic sight.
