New Hubble Gallery of Messier Catalog

Last week, the Hubble Space Telescope Mission released a gallery of images of Messier objects. The gallery includes old and new HST imagery as well as eight never-before-released Hubble images.

HST has not imaged all 110 catalog objects; as of September 2017, it had targeted 93 of them. Hubble's views can capture astounding clarity and detailed areas of the famous collection.
