Thanks, all! I was two weeks on holiday (without internet), so sorry for the late reaction...

@ John: I never observed M5 with a big scope, but will keep it in mind.

@ Andre: Poskus 1 is small (6,5') and weak (I guess stars around mag 13-14). It is situated some 10' northwest of Gamma Del. Maybe this 30' wide photo of DSS can help.

Speaking of spiral structure, the one object that amazed me with a spiral 'feature' was ... an open cluster! Have you ever looked at M25 with a pair of binoculars?

Clear skies,
