I imaged these somewhat smallish globulars recently - from my front driveway which is in a light polluted area. I have attached an image of M56. Both images can be accessed (as well as exposure / processing details) at:

Scope: C8 at f/5 and f/10 respectively. LRGB images with ToUcam SC3.

Nice images. Some dust motes are present. These should come out easily with flats.

Beautiful shots Jim, excellent detail & colors!
I surely hope my DSI will allow me to get something like these shots sometime in the near future!

Keep them coming!
