Messier Marathon

The Messier objects were listed by Charles Messier in 1771. These fuzzy objects were hindering Messier in his search for comets so he listed them to avoid confusion. There is a full list of the Messier objects on Wikipedia.

Society members are aiming to image all these objects. The project started on 2nd May 2013 and this web page will be updated as new images are produced.


Members please send your images to projects@manastro.org .
