    Hello Markan,

    your Megrez might show some granularity on the globulars.

    I was using Star Walk and between the moon, just coming out of my well lit house and the screen glare from the iPod, I'm surprised I found anything. I gave up on M3 because it was so high in the sky I was getting a stiff neck.

    I looked at M10 and M12 tonight. I found them with my binoculars and saw both in the same field of view. I couldn't quite get them in the same FOV with my 90mm refractor and a Meade 28mm which would be about 3.4 deg. They were right on the opposite edges.

    had fun tonight with this list. M5 looked great through my little iOptron R80G, used a wide field eyepiece with a Meade shorty Barlow...

    A few more globular clusters to try for in Ophiuchus. I don't know if they're visible with binoculars, but maybe a small telescope.

    Nice list. Hope to find some globs in Aquarius and Ophiucus this weekend.

    Default Thanks, got six of them!

    Thanks for this list! With the exception of M13, these were all new for me! I was able to find M92 through some power lines and when the clouds had covered the rest of the sky. M3 was easy, and brighter than I expected. M10 and M12 were great to find in that dark region of Ophiucus, and M5 was fun to spot as well. I will shoot for M4 and M22 next time out!
