A pretty faint, 4' globular cluster. It is somewhat brighter towards the middle, but no core is visible. Sometimes it seems to be slightly granular, even a couple of its stars are visible.The inner part is irregular. There is a (brighter) spot or filament towards north, northwest and west. It is extended towards east and south.
