A nice bright Globular, easily spotted at 110x. At 110x the globular
appeared bright and round (slighly brighter towards the center).
Jumping to 150x began to resolve some of the outer stars and gave a
pin cushion effect to the rest of the globular. 220x resolved some
additional outer stars, did not help much as the seeing was very poor.
