Very dense.  At 56x and 94x it was nondescript and unremarkable.  Core was very bright with a lighter halo, pretty and bright, just unremarkable.  At 
112x it is nice, partially resolved in the halo, but very faint.  At 188x some 
stars are resolved in the core, with most of the halo.  Not a remarkable resolution like in m13 or m22, but the stars are very faint.  It is a very 
appealing view.  at 316x the view looked promising, but the atmosphere would allow it.  188x seems like the best view.
