Messiers from Hubble

Found the Hubble Messier catalogue flickr photo album. Oooh. Lovely.

This does not include all the Messier objects. And, of the ones shown, in general, they are close up. That is, the field of view of the Hubble Space Telescope is small so we are presented with a tightly zoomed in view or a cropped portion of the object in question. On the other hand, we can see extraordinary detail in galaxies and globular clusters and nebulae. 

Turn the lights down low. View full screen.
