    18th century comet hunter Charles Messier had a problem He was finding a number of strange objects that made his comet hunting difficult In 1774 he published the first edition of his catalog By the time the final version was published in 1781 the catalog contained 103 objects The catalog that Messier compiled of nuisance objects turned out to be one of the most important and long lasting catalogs in astronomy The objects turned out to be various types of nebulea and galaxies This book takes each one of Messier's Object identifies it and locates it so that any amatuer with a modest telescope can observe them
