I should also note that the NASA Space Place column in the April newsletter discusses blue stars in globular clusters, although I have not noticed color visually before.
FWIW, I was just thinking last week that M53 is one of those globs that seems to suffer more than most in light pollution. Or is it just me?

Interesting, Nick. It's funny I was just reading a Sue French column last week where she mentioned seeing Coddington's nebula in her 105 mm refractor and described it as 'a compelling sight' in her 10". I had always thought this was too difficult for an 8", but after reading Sue & your account, I will mark it down for future frustration, I mean fun. ;-)
The antennae galaxies were quite nice when I first saw them last spring. I am waiting for a night at a dark site to revisit. I viewed the siamese twin galaxies last week and could just barely make them out from my backyard.
