    Yeah, you probably need to time the due south view, which like I said is about 5 am right now. Was doing the math, looks like M7 gets only 6.8 degrees high for you. Of course will help that it's so bright...

    Daydreaming this morning, I remembered you saying this. Actually you won't see the whole eastern portion of Scorpius from up there, the bottom part doesn't get above your horizon.
