An image of Messier 31, the Andromeda Galaxy, has been uploaded

Hi all,

I know that Messier 31 is a classic image. Probably, together with M42, one of the most imaged deep sky objects. This image has been the result of combining images from three telescopes, a 106 mm and a 150 mm refractors as well as a 24 inch reflector. The goal was to have a high resolution image of M31. You can find it at:

Messier 31 and satellites M32 and m110

Enjoy,

An image of Messier 67, the King Cobra Cluster, has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of Messier 67, the King Cobra Cluster, has been uploaded. This one is a very interesting cluster. Being very old (the oldest in the Messier Catalog) it contains Blue Stragglers and even exoplanets (11 candidates) have been detected in M67. You can find the image as well as some more information at:

An image of a Messier globular cluster (M14) has been uploaded

Hi all,

An image of a globular cluster (Messier 14) located in the constellation Ophiuchus has been uploaded. The first ever photographed nova (1932) exploded in M14. Anyhow, this nova was not discovered until 1964, when some astronomers were studying older images of M14. You can find the image and some more info at:

Messier 14. NGC 6402

Enjoy,
Josep
