This is a list objects that were catalogued by the French Astronomer Charles Messier. The Messier catalogue is a list of 110 astronomical objects. The catalogue was created due to the fact that Charles Messier was only interested in finding Comets but all these other objects in the sky were “frustrating” him in his search for said Comets. The list was compiled in collaboration with his assistant Pierre Mechain. The list is hugely popular with amateur astronomers due to there being many deep sky objects in the list and the relative ease of finding the objects on the list. It has a large range of objects including Star Clusters , Nebulae & Galaxies . Below is the full list of Messier objects and the ones that are links are objects that I have personally taken pictures of and clicking in them will take you to the relevant page. I will be adding to the list as and when I take the pictures and hopefully over time I can complete the list.
