Description


Grab your telescope and explore the galax(ies)!

Over 200 years ago, the French comet hunter Charles Messier (pronounced Messy-ay) published a list of fuzzy, comet-like objects he saw through his telescope. While to him they were a nuisance, we know them now to be star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies! Modern astronomers later expanded his list from 103 to 110 objects—and they're some of the finest celestial sights to explore with your backyard telescope, for both stargazing beginners and those ready to move past the moon and planets.

110 Things to See with a Telescope is your complete guide to seeing each deep-sky object on Messier's list, with features such as:

  • A star map for each target, with written directions for how to find it by star hopping
  • "Eyepiece view" images to confirm what you're seeing
  • Tips for observation from two veteran stargazers
  • An observation log so you can track your progress
  • A recommended viewing order for the objects
  • And more!

Enjoy the night sky through a whole new lens. With this book and a telescope you can find, view, and record your observations of the 110 most popular stargazing targets.
