Congratulations on your first glob, may it be the first of many! M13 was my first globular too. Wonderful object and the first DSO beyond obvious ones like the Pleiades I managed to spot. Great moment of triumph, all those years back. I still like picking it up in whatever instrument I have handy; it's like an old friend up there in the skies. If you get tired of M13, you are tired of astronomy, I would say.

I know the feeling - whenever it's clear it's an early start for me lately!
