Constellation: Her

Description: M92 is smaller and more condensed as nearby M13. With 72x and
averted vision there were some hints of stars in the cluster. This impression
is a little bit more obvious than with M13 and much more so than with M5.
One always tends to overlook it because of nearby M13. Don't do that -
M92 is worth every look.
