Double cluster

I found the double cluster with my 10 x 50 binoculars with ease, but yet to find it with my c9.25 in my light polluted back yard. My scope has a telrad and a 6x30 finder (junk). After being able to find it with the binoc's, I was able to view the telrad through the binoc's and adjust the scope as required. It was tricky holding the binoc's in one hand keeping the bull's eye in view and reaching over and turning the slow mo knob's with the other. But I did it! It was a proud moment for me. Moral of the story, time for a new finder!
