NGC 5824

Observation Notes:

NGC 5824 was one of the bright objects that Eric Graff had proposed observing in the southern sky. It was a beautiful globular. Through Eric's scope, I thought I could detect some granularity in it. But when I made the observation later through my scope, I didn't notice this effect. The core was strongly condensed, and seemed to be somewhat off-center--hovering closer to the southwest side. The diameter I noticed was somewhere around 1.5 arcminutes.
