Messier Mararthon

Been looking for a bit of imaging motivation and purpose to my imaging so thought the Messier Marathon might be the way to go, has anyone ever attempted it ?

As there are over 100 it could be a lengthy process in the UK. Assuming just capturing the object with maybe an hours data with a OSC camera you could maybe average 3 or 4 in a session or even more when capturing some of the star clusters. Based on that, being optimistic you might do it in 20 sessions so being even more optimistic you might do it in a year, more realistically 2 years.

I bet Carole has imaged most of them :thumbsup:
