GC class XII


21/04/15
Completly the opposite of M3, viewed before it
This Globular Cluster is barley visible in 12mm, just a hazy, very faint blob caught in odd moments using inverted vision and slowly moving the FOV to detect the haze

12/05/15
Sits in a neat starfield close to HIP 68955 at Mag 6.85 and above a row of three stars of Mags 10.05, 10.70 and 11.00 in 25mm and 12mm FOVs
 Very faint haze, nothing resolved but this could be because the sky is not yet truly dark at 22:59!
