To my eyeballs, it looks a little dimmer to the naked eye, but it is still easily a naked eye object, even with my mediocre suburban skies. It also looks a little dimmer to me in the binocs, but even in those you can tell it is larger. I have wondered if it looks dimmer because it is spread out over a bigger volume?
