Thanks Sab, I found NGC 6221 quite complex to look at, I think because its amongst a bit of foreground activity. I want to have a bit more of a look at this one and perhaps do some sketching, I'll get back to you on the knot.

Hope you have a good night - if you get your scope any better collimated, who knows what you'll be able to see. I'm going to try your trick with a dark headcloth for my next exploration of faint galaxies. I already use a towel over my head for solar observing, so it's just one more small step into the lunatic world of the obsessed observer. I already look like some kind of hybrid of a brown bear, a pile of washing and a red-eyed dalek on most observing nights.
