Charles Messier - with an ASE medal - sadly never actually awarded - but we would have done.

ASE Messier Project

This is our attempt to image as many of the Messier objects as we can. Images are by Imaging & Observing Group members. Only one image is shown on this page but if you click on an image it will show you all of the images taken of that object. Some may only have one, some may have many. We start populating it January 2021. 34/110
