m5 II

The last attempt a year ago had me preferring m5 over m13. Discovered by Kirch in 1702 and catalogued by Messier in 1764, it was left to Herschel -who had a telescope large enough- to find that this object wasn't a comet, but rather consisted of stars. In 1791, he counted 200. Patience indeed. I think I got a few of them...
