Comparing Globular Clusters

However, quite bright and easy to find

This Mag 9.4 Globular Cluster observed just after M92 and before that M13 which gave a nice scaling of size, with M92 about half that of M13 and twice that of NGC 6229
A small tight ball, quite bright but with no stars resolved within it
Forms a nice equilateral triangle with HIP 82113 at Mag 8.0 and HIP 82117 at Mag 8.35
