Visual scanning at home

No time to really observe, just pulled out my Canon 10x30 IS and open my home window to scan around. Scorpius is hanging outside the window, excellent transparency really help to reduce the problem of light pollution.

M6 and M7 are easily seen with such a small aperture, stars are well resolved thanks to the IS. M4 is again impossible under bright sky, I've tried M4 from my home with a C8 but still failed, so there's no chance virtually with a pair of 30mm binoculars.

It's refreshing enough for me, especially during the busy days.
