At the toe of the "golf club" asterism I make this out on a hazy, humid night that interferes with seeing. Deep Sky / UHC cures it. Low power is best. You get a text book photo view of 752. It fills the field.

Background stars are like silver sand grains. I get a star glow of dust emanating from 2, 13, and 10, and 6, some of the largest stars in the object. This is towards the middle of the object to NW. Using 12.5mm (x80) power enlargens stars of course, but does nothing for the background. It is vast. Try Er 20 without a filter or a typical 25mm Kellner with UHC.
