I would like to thank James McGaha for capturing these images as well as Tim Hunter for his hard work in capturing, processing and compiling these wonderful Messier Objects. More information about Tim Hunter and James McGaha can be found at their website, the Grasslands Observatory.

These Messier images were captured using a 24 inch reflecting telescope with a Finger Lakes Dream Machine CCD camera.

I have also compiled a table of Messier Objects to other catalog listing.

Here are the Messier Objects - M97 to M110:

M97 - "Owl Nebula" a planetary nebula in the constellation Ursa Major. M98 - a spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices. M99 - a spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices. M100 - "The Mirror of M99" a spiral galaxy in the constellation Coma Berenices. M101 - a spiral galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major.
M102 - the missing M object? A lenticular galaxy in the constellation Draco, some still believe it is also M101 (a duplicate entry). M103 - an open cluster in the constellation Cassiopeia. M104 - "Sombrero Galaxy" a spiral galaxy in the constellation Virgo. M105 - an elliptical galaxy (right of center) in the constellation Leo. M106 - a spiral galaxy in the constellation Canes Venatici.
 
M107 - a globular cluster in the constellation Ophiuchus. M108 - a spiral galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major. M109 - a barred spiral galaxy in the constellation Ursa Major. M110 - an elliptical galaxy in the constellation Andromeda (a companion to M31).
