Deep Sky Companions: The Messier Objects (Deep-sky Companions) (Deep-sky Companions) When you first start observing or imaging, the Messier list of objects is a very good place to start looking for nice deep-sky objects in the Northern Hemisphere.

Stephen James O’Meara has produced a beautiful reference work on the Messier objects in this “Deep Sky Companions” masterpiece.  Each Messier object is carefully described by Stephen as it appears to him through a modest refractor.  In addition, a very useful black and white photograph accompanies each object so you can be sure that you’re looking at the right thing.

I refer to this book [as well as Stephen’s other 3 books that I will recommend] on an almost weekly basis.  Full of very useful information and background detail – very highly recommended!

You can purchase the book at Amazon or any other good book retailer.
