M2m2


Globular Cluster in Aquarius
NGC 7089
Mag 6.3

GC class II


04/08/13
Tighter and more compact than M15, starting to resolve in 12mm, at least at outer edges

03/09/13
Comparing Globular Clusters
Large bright core but rapidly fades away from centre

26/09/13
Similar to M15 in size and appearance but slightly less dense core?

19/07/15
Really tight and bright Globular Cluster
Just a hint of resolution of outer stars in 12mm where it is a bright ball in an otherwise sparse starfield low down on the horizon

25/08/16
About the same magnitude as M15, observed just before M2
Mag 6.50 compared to Mag 6.40 for M15 but appears fainter, with more of a fuzzy ball centre
This could just be that it sits much lower on the horizon and it is certainly rather hazy
