Thanks for the feedback and some very interesting information, Les. I was browsing the LMC last night and both my Morel atlas and the Night Sky Observer's Guide listed quite a few GCs - I will now approach this more sceptically. They certainly look like GCs. Do you know of any online resource that would list the actual GCs. I am also curious about why so many OCs in the Magellanic Clouds look so round and compact and so like GCs. Is it just because they are further away than those in the Milky Way which look so much more variable, or is it actually a difference in the structure of them.
