Sketch notes
Didnt seem to have the brightness of M14 even though on paper it is mag 6.8.
Central core larger and more spread out and lacked the surrounding stars around the glob.
All the stars resolved to the centre and looked very nice with higher magnification but sketched with the same as EP as M14 for comparison.
