Because he did not at all care about other objects in the sky, he compiled a list that would help him not to run in these objects again. For last year observation, I had made similar list in Excel with slicer o fconstellations, rising time, magnitude. Is this :              available in electronic form that can be imported into :              EXCEL ? > Hi David > I've seen a post from someone here mentioning that they had created a list > like this, but since it was geared towards MS Windows (I generally use > Linux) I didn't save the reference. Copy and use if you want. The Messier catalog contains more than 100 objects - galaxies, star clusters, nebulae, and others. The common name in parentheses is just the main object involved...I know Orion is M42 and Andromeda is M31, so I'm not going to confuse them. Charles Messier was an astronomer who lived from 1730 to 1817. I had a hard time finding a nice Messier list so I made this spreadsheet to help me organize and track my progress.

The Messier objects are a set of 110 astronomical objects catalogued by the French astronomer Charles Messier in his Catalogue des Nébuleuses et des Amas d'Étoiles ("Catalogue of Nebulae and Star Clusters"). Because Messier was only interested in finding comets, he created a list of non-comet objects that frustrated his hunt for them. At least, it would be interesting for my Messier goodies list :) For me to using it more extensively, you had to point me to a native OS/2 program which can use it. original author (if known).

6 diffuse nebulae, I've now expanded it to include all the DSOs that are showing in the Pocket Sky Atlas and plan to add 200+ named and double stars soon. There are several one-of-a-kind objects in the catalog including 1 supernova remnant, 1 Milky Way patch, 1 double star, and 1 asterism. This serves as a real-time observing list where, for example, you could display only the Messier objects that you haven't previously observed, and sort based on altitude starting with those setting in the west to those rising in the east. But several forms exist, so maybe. Recent Images | The Messier Catalog was complied from 1758 to 1782 by French astronomer Charles Messier.
