Messier objects -- M41 to M80 for Messier Award Contest

#1

Post by BABOafrica »

I already did M1 to M40 (all posted in my gallery) and got my "bling" for that set.

Now I have uploaded 40 more images to my gallery -- in the appropriate order -- from M41 to M80. You can see them here:

app.php/gallery/album/99

I am attaching a spread sheet giving details of acquisition.

PS Actually I'm almost finished the final 30 images (M81 to M110). Still have a few to go. One of them is M102 -- and being below the equator, that's a tough one for me.

Nice one Babo. That's a fine collection.

I see you have Bortle 3 skies in your area. That must be great!

Congratulations on the achievement. I look forward to seeing the final section.

Regards

Graeme
