After M53 I went back into the house (aren't Astro Goggles great!) and
searched for some more visible globulars, settling on this one. This
is another faint globular that can't stand up to the likes of M53, but
it did appear brighter than NGC 5053. Other than that, there really
isn't much to say. [See previous logs of gcs N5053 and M53.]
