Bicentenary of Charles Messier's death - this week!

6 posts in this topic

April 2017 marks the bicentenary of the death of Charles Messier, the man whose name is synonymous with many of the best deep-sky objects in the northern sky.

You can see a video of a short on Messier's life given by Dr Stewart Moore at the BAA on this page: https://britastro.org/node/9721

Interesting to find out that he may be somewhat undervalued in France, and perhaps looked down on as a mere recorder of facts as opposed to a theoretician. But his comet discovery feats alone surely mark him out as an observer of the first rank.
