The slowness of my Slow Motion Messier Marathon continues to impress me. Since my last update I have a few new photos and few do-overs:

New ones:

  • M1, the Crab Nebula.
  • M78, a reflection nebula in Orion.
  • M96, M105, a couple of spiral galaxies.
  • M97, M108, the Owl Nebula and a barred spiral galaxy.


  • M31, the Great Galaxy in Andromeda.
  • M42, the Great Nebula in Orion.
  • M45, the Pleiades.
  • M51, the Whirlpool Galaxy.

Here is the updated list of Messier objects I’ve captured so far, with the do-overs in their places.

The full table (including all the missing objects) is also available on my Messier page.
