Deep-Sky Companions: The Messier Objects Description
Author: Stephen James O'Meara

Hardcover: 318 pages

The 109 galaxies, star clusters, and nebulae catalogued by comet hunter Charles Messier in the late 1700s are still the most widely observed celestial wonders. They are the favorite targets of amateur astronomers, with such rich variety and detail that they never cease to fascinate. this book provides both new and experienced observers with a fresh perspective on the Messier objects. Stephen James O'Meara has prepared a visual feast for the stargazer. Using the finest telescopes available and observing from some of the clearest, darkest sites on Earth, he describes the view in the eyepiece as never before. There are new drawings, improved finder charts, and new astronomica; data on each object, including findings from the Hubble Space Telescope. This is truly the Messier guide for the modern age.
