  1. Messier object

    The Messier objects are a set of astronomical objects first listed by French astronomer Charles Messier in 1771. Messier was a comet hunter, and was frustrated by objects which resembled but were not comets, so he compiled a list of them, in collaboration with his assistant Pierre Méchain, to avoid wasting time on them. A similar list had been published in 1654 by Giovanni Hodierna, but had no impact and was probably not known to Messier.
