Through a 81mm triplet I could see a smudge with two embedded stars, but when I viewed this through a 16" dob under dark skies it appeared as a thumb print in the sky, very nice indeed.


You do need dark skies though.

I have never viewed it visually but I chuckled when I read somewhere that "It's an easy target in small scopes".


it is easy to "see" I've seen it at Belper in 20x 60 binos


but as Doc says it is a smudge with 2 stars
