Learning to slew this new-to-me telescope to the object, and thankfully Ophiuchus remained high in the sky for this session. I have viewed M10 numerous times with 10x42 IS binoculars so knew generally where to look along the line (1/3 of the way up) from Sabik to κ Oph. 

It was a very faint roundish object. I could not see any individual or bright grouping of stars within the cluster.
