Description

I very nearly forgot about this one. It should have gone in before M4 and I utterly forget of its existence. So I make amends and I let it slip in in place of M22, which would follow shortly. Another little gem from the dark skies of southern Sardinia and run in a rush the last few days (when everything is piling up and time is running short). M80 is one of the most dense if not the most dense GC of the around 150 known in the MW. You wouldn't tell by the look of it but there you are...
