M 92

Often forgotten because of its very famous neighbor M 13,  Messier 92 (more data) is an amazing globular cluster, initially discovered by Johann Elert Bode in 1777. Placed a bit further than its big brother, M 92 is a great view for amateur-sized telescopes. In absolute, it is one of the brightest globular clusters in our Milky Way
