What You Should See:

NGC 6934 is a very easy object, even in a 8×30 binocular. There is a phenomenon that is common to almost all large-ish globular clusters in 100mm glasses at ×37: they appears to get larger as transparency improves. NGC 6943 displays this phenomenon in a more pronounced degree than any other globular which I have tested for it.
