Welcome to the Messier Catalogue Project

This will be a long term and ongoing project to collect photos of all 110 Messier Objects. I would like to collect several photos of each object using various mediums. These don't have to be professional level photographs so don't be shy! If we can capture photos showing what you see visually, all the better! Please list the following information with each photo:


Your Full name
Where you reside (Town and Country)
Time and Date of the photo
Equipment and processing used

We respectfully request that all work be original. I look forward to seeing what we can achieve! Tina

DO you want them posted here? I would recommend building a FORUM for just this collection, and then building a thread for each of the messiers! That way all the images will be posted in the proper thread. At the end we could decide which images will make up the catalogue. You could make each of the threads sticky and not allow any new threads to be created.

My opinion!

Not if you are the moderator! I want to keep things right here for now. If it overgrows it boundaries I will consider moving it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Great idea. File size limit? 60k? 100k? 1 Gig?

Jpeg format just does not do any justice for it. Looks a lot better in its original format.

Thanks
