Although the moon was up, I thought Id try to observe some objects
in Sco and Sag. I went for M4 first - I have located it before and
its easy to find. Should give me some idea of what I could see
tonight. Was dim but quite visible, with a hint of a core.
Not able to resolve any individual stars at any power.
