Messier's Nebulae and Star Clusters
Cambridge University Press, 1991 - Počet stran: 427
Charles Messier's catalog of nebulae and star clusters, published in 1784, marked the start of a new era of deep-sky astronomy. Today, this tradition of observing galaxies and clusters is kept alive by dedicated amateur astronomers. Nearly all the objects are visible in a small telescope, and many, such as the Crab Nebula and the Andromeda galaxy, are among the most fascinating objects in the universe. Kenneth Glyn Jones has revised his definitive version of Messier's catalog. His own observations and drawings, together with maps and diagrams, make this a valuable introduction to deep-sky observing. Historical and astrophysical notes bring the science of these nebulae right up to date. This is a unique handbook, unlikely ever to be equaled in its completeness and importance to the telescope owner.

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.
