M69 / NGC6637
Constellation - Sagittarius
Globular clster
Distance - 33600 Ly

Date - 8/9/12
Seeing - Antoniadi IV with poor transparency
SQM - 21.3 (LM 6.3)

Telescope - 12" f/5
EP - 7mm Pentax XW x218 TFoV 0˚19

Sketch materials - white patels and ink pen

Sketch notes
Small glob which required high mag but still hardly resolving any stars, could only just about make out the key stars which makes the pattern of the glob.
Core brightness was very evenly spread.
Poor seeing and transparency made this a very hard object to view but I'm sure more detail could be seen in better conditions.
