I just came it from a short observing session with my 11x56 Obies. I hit M13 which is over a VERY BRIGHT ballfield. They turn the lights off in about 30 minutes, but right now that section of the sky is milk colored - not dark at all. M13 was still easy to bag. I am going back out when they turn off the star killers...

Play ball! Yeah, right. Well, it takes some bright objects to cut through the "light fog", but even ballfield lights can't bring down M13's shine. I hope the lights went out like you expected.

They did and it improved the view nicely. I also broke out the Nighthawk with the 8-24mm Zoom and spent some time with M13 with that combo.
