M12m12


Globular Cluster in Ophiuchus
NGC 6218
Mag 7.7
GC class IX


05/06/13
Similar to M10 but with a nice 'mini Plough' following on behind as an asterism
Visible in binoculars

17/06/14
A much tighter and more dense Globular Cluster than it's neighbour M10 which is of a similar magnitude
However, not so many resolvable stars around it's outer edge

18/05/15
Even less of a core than M10, observed just before M12
Some outer stars resolved in 12mm with inverted vision
M12 sits in a really neat 25mm and 12mm FOV with a lot of Mag 10ish stars around it forming geometric shapes
