This has been a too difficult object for long time but I finally caught it. Good skies and equipment...and less good observer. Palomar 10 appeared occasionally as a very faint haze without clear shape with extremely averted vision at 176x. Some faint stars can be detectable on the south and east edges. Tough one.
