The Messier Objects - Images by James McGaha and Tim Hunter:

Latest | Earth | Solar System | Star Cluster | Nebulae | Galaxies | Messier | Egypt's Night Sky | CFHT | Personal

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.
