This was easy found it right off because of the bright star next to it. Takes mag well. Has a very nice smaller/closer star just to the star side of it. Showing the clasic glob profile. Seems to be quite large and spread out but light polution is bad from Claremore and it is getting low in the south. Very cool triple object!!
