Aloha,

Out on my deck, too tired to set up the telescope this night, I observed with my 7×35 Nikon binocular instead.
Locating Omega Centauri amongst the trees was a treat, particularly since there was a lovely asterism of 6th & 7th magnitude stars beneath it that look like the Big Dipper with a curved tail.
