Messier Finders

Listed below are a complete set of Telrad finder guides to the 110 Messier objects in Adobe Acrobat format, created using Skymap Pro. Click on a link to download the PDF chart of your choice.

A full set of guides are available for the Caldwell Finders along with a limited number of finder charts for other Misc Deep Sky Finders objects.

Each finder guide is centered about the object listed (with an overlaid Telrad sight) and shows surrounding objects down to either magnitude 6.5 or 7 depending on the chart. If the object has a common name this is listed, otherwise the object type is noted.
