Introduction

The Messier List of deep-sky objects presents a good starting point for a budding amatuer astronomer who is trying to learn his way around the sky.  The list is filled with a large variety of objects, almost all of which are easy to locate and observe.  I started working my way through this list using visual observing, but found my ability to document what I saw with sketches to be lacking...not to mention the fact that some of the objects in the list (like galaxies for example) were simply not going to be observable from my home in Ottawa.  My recent two-footed jump onto the video astronomy boat has removed both of these limitations; I can document my observation using screen captures, and there are no objects on the Messier List that I can not view in splendid detail and colour with my Mallincam.

Below is a fairly simple catalog of the Messier List objects I have viewed to date.  Unless otherwise stated, each image is a hand-stack of 3 screen captured camera frames (stacked to reduce random image noise), with perhaps minor tweaks in brightness here and there.  All images are from my Mallincam Xtreme camera.
