A Couple of Comets and a Couple of Non-Comets (Messier Objects)

Recommended Posts

As many of you will know 12 April was the 200th anniversary of Charles Messier's death. During the month I've been looking for a couple of comets and here are some snaps of them together with a couple of Messier objects in Hercules, which is where comet Johnson was at the time. Comet 41P/T-G-K is in Hercules too, now.

Clear skies!
