A large, bright cluster. When i was looking at it in the high power
EP, suddenly individual starss popped into view. They extended
well beyond the dense core and seemed to be in the form of a square.
This more so with averted vision, however, it appeared more on the
side away from the side I was averting to, so I am niot sure if
this is not some sort of illusion.
