I was going through a number of objects with the 16" dob last night when I came across GC NGC 5946 (in Norma). It appeared like a small - mid size smudge with a bright outlier. Yet, on a photo of it from the Deep Sky Survey - there is no clear bright outlier. The brightness of the outlier caused the object to almost seem like it had a dark lane in it (optical affect of the brighter outlier). I checked the Star Atlas for any galaxies I might have accidently observerd - but there is no other objects nearby.
Any secondary observations/impressions would be appreciated!!
