Messier 110 List

List | References

In the following, I reveal for the list of the 110 Messier objects (according to the Messier Guide from the Oculum publishing house), to what extent I have already photographed them with electronic telescopes or with astro cameras. Visual observations are not taken into account.

Object Name Constellation Type eVscope eVscope 2 Vespera Cameras Comments
M 1 Crab Nebula Taurus GE yes yes AI Supernova remnant from 1054
M 2 Aquarius GC yes yes yes   One of the larger GC
M 3 Canes Venatici GC yes yes   One of the larger GC
M 4 Scorpius GC yes One of the larger GC; down south and thus, hard to observe
M 5 Serpens Caput GC yes yes   One of the larger GC
M 6 Scorpius OC yes Forms a cluster duo with M 7, but not in the eVscope...
M 7 Scorpius OC yes Forms a cluster duo with M 6, but not in the eVscope...
M 8 Lagoon Nebula Sagittarius OC+GN yes Emission nebula (NGC 6523) and open star cluster (NGC 6530)
M 9 Ophiuchus GC yes Small globular star cluster
M 10 Ophiuchus GC yes yes   Forms a pair with the globular star cluster M 12
M 11 Wild Ducks Cluster Scutum OC yes yes yes 224 Is located in the Scutum cloud, a special section of the Milky Way; therefore the photos are full of stars.
M 12 Ophiuchus GC yes yes   Forms a pair with the globular star cluster M 10
M 13 Hercules Cluster Hercules GC yes yes yes 224 One of the largest GC
M 14 Ophiuchus GC yes yes   The third of the three bright globular star clusters in Ophiuchus, but different in character from M 10 und M 12
M 15 Pegasus GC yes yes yes AI Supposedly, it is the best globular cluster in autumn, bright core
M 16 Eagle Nebula Serpens OC+GN yes yes yes 224 Star cluster M 16 embedded in the Eagle Nebula IC 4703
M 17 Omega or Swan Nebula Sagittarius GE yes yes yes 224 One of the most beautiful emission nebulae; in the reversing telescope, some people recognize a swan...
M 18 Sagittarius OC yes More a less a "sub par" star cluster
M 19 Ophiuchus GC yes Famous for its oval shape
M 20 Trifid Nebula Sagittarius GE yes 224 Is called Trifid Nebula because it consists of three parts.
M 21 Sagittarius OC yes Open star cluster that is given little attention
M 22 Sagittarius GC yes One of the largest GC
M 23 Sagittarius OC yes Large open star cluster (nearly moon size)
M 24 Small Sagittarius Cloud Sagittarius SC yes Part of the Milky Way, too large for the eVscope
M 25 Sagittarius OC yes More of a "classical object for binoculars"
M 26 Scutum OC yes yes   One of the more inconspicuous star clusters
M 27 Dumbbell Nebula Vulpecula PN yes yes yes AI, 224 One of the most beautiful nebulae for me
M 28 Sagittarius GC yes Smaller than the nearby M 22
M 29 Cygnus OC yes yes   Pattern created from only a few stars
M 30 Capricornus GC yes According to Stoyan, a typical globular star cluster that cannot be resolved in small telescopes. In the eVscope this is manifested by the very bright core.
M 31 Andromeda Galaxy Andromeda G yes yes yes AI Too large for the eVscope's field of view
M 32 Comp. of Andromeda G. Andromeda G yes yes AI Can be observed in the Vespera together with M 31, not in the eVscope
M 33 Triangulum Galaxy Triangulum G yes yes Very faint, details recognizable only after longer exposures
M 34 Perseus OC yes Large and nice open star cluster, reminds me of M 41
M 35 Gemini OC yes yes AI Large and nice open star cluster; with AI also togethe with NGC 2518
