Part of the The Patrick Moore Practical Astronomy Series book series (PATRICKMOORE)


Chapter 2 goes into the details of the 17 telescopes and cameras used to take the Messier images. Telescope images of the actual telescopes used are included where possible when suitable images were available. In cases where they were not readily available images of the telescope models are included that were supplied courtesy of the manufacturers. Not all the telescopes/cameras available on the system were used but details of those that were are included and the Messier images taken with specific telescopes identified.
