M10 In Ophiuchus

click on thumb for a big picture

I got some more scope time in last night.
It was not the best viewing but its better then nothing.
I have been looking for M10 and M12 in Ophiuchus for a couple of weeks now and last night I FOUND M10 I could not find M12 thru all of the ground haze!

M10 was discovered 1764 by Charles Messier.
and is a 7th mag globular cluster.
It is 14,300 light years away from us!
