Messier objects -- M1 to M40


Post by BABOafrica »

I did images of all 110 objects many years ago with my first equipment. I decided to start over and try it again. I just finished M40 the other night.

I'm not 100 % sure how to go about this since the 'rules' in the main thread for Messier Contests seem to apply to the visual program.

I uploaded 40 images to my gallery -- in the appropriate order (from M1 to M40).


I am attaching a spread sheet giving details of acquisition.

PS I'll be going for the rest of the Messiers as time goes by ... Maybe I'll finish up some time by June or July ... Or earlier if I can get some of those pesky Virgo galaxies to cooperate.
