I've had this experience before with M11 the Wild Duck Cluster. The question I have for y'all is this: From way back in the late 60s reading Edmund catalogs, I had always thought that deep sky objects (DSOs) should be viewed at low to mid power. Yet for a few of them, it appears that high power seems to work even to the point of making them "brighter." Is this correct, or should I stick to low or medium power for some DSOs.
Thanks for your response....
