Very bright, compact center. Glimpsed a few scattered stars at 72x in the edge regions.

EASY
8" f/6, 37x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.2
At 37x very well condensed, getting much more fainter towards the edges. The edge regions were partly resolved, otherwise granulous. At 150x many stars visible, also near the center. The cluster appeared almost like an open cluster.

M12 (GC)

Image source: DSS II (red) - 16×16'

B 40mm, 8x, Bortle 5, NELM 5.5
Evident. Round, diffuse with brighter center.

EASY
4.5" f/8, 28x, Bortle 6+
Center much brighter than outer regions. At 28x an evident star at the edge of the cluster. Not resolvable. Glimpsed some scattered stars at 100x in the outermost regions, otherwise the cluster seemed more granulous.

EASY
8" f/6, 37x, Bortle 4, SQM-L 21.2
At 37x pretty well condensed, nicely embedded in a group of stars. The cluster appeared already granulous with averted vision and showed an irregular shape. At 150x the edge regions are quite well resolved, the cluster itself appeared irregular. It looked as if an open cluster is in the foreground.
