I’m unsure why I’m not seeing it pop like I’ve seen in some pictures (look at the one I’ve linked at the bottom for my expectations). I’m able to see the swirl of light for both globulars, but it’s as if I’m looking at many small, faint blobs of light. It’s not one giant one like others have described when looking though a small scope.
I know it’s not my collimation because I’ve done star tests and saw a lot of detail at 200x on Jupiter that I wouldn’t be able to see if my scope was poorly collimated.
M22 looked about as good from what I remember compared to M13 despite M22 being much lower to the horizon, and in a spot where I have more light pollution. I’ve read that both clusters are similar in size and brightness for a northern observer, but why would M22 look just as good as M13 unless it was because of transparency and/or seeing? The transparency was average both nights, but the seeing could have been poor.
