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... :grin:

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.
