 Messier 13 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Messier Object 13, the Great Globular Cluster in Hercules; one of the most prominent and best known globular clusters of the Northern celestial hemisphere.
The Great Globular Cluster in Hercules (also known as the Hercules Globular Cluster, Messier Object 13, Messier 13, M13, or NGC 6205) is a globular cluster in the Hercules constellation at right ascension 16
With an apparent magnitude of 5.8, it is barely visible with the naked eye on a very clear night.

 Charles Messier
Messier as loyal employee stated: "I was a loyal servant of M. Delisle, I lived with him in his house, and I conformed with his command." When Delisle finally announced the discovery on April 1, 1759, it was not believed by the other French astronomers (perhaps they took it as an April Fool's joke).
The Messier catalog was finally corrected by identifying at least 3 of the 4 missing objects, and brought into its current state by adding the late discoveries of Messier and Mechain, M104--M109, plus the non-cataloged discovery M110, only in the 20th century.
Messier was appointed as associate editor of the Connaissance des Temps in 1785, and hold this post for five years until 1790.

 BBC - h2g2 - Messier Objects   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-10)
There are two types in Messier's catalogue: diffuse nebulae, which are clouds of interstellar gas and dust; and planetary nebula, which are essentially shells of gas expelled by a star as it shrinks from a red giant to white dwarf.
There is some speculation that Messier included this in his catalogue to 'pad' the number of objects as it is not one of the typical fuzzy patches of light that could be mistaken for a comet.
M76 - Among the faintest of the Messier objects, this planetary nebula shines at magnitude 10.1 in the constellation of Perseus.

Messier entered the 1995-96 season just eight goals shy of becoming the 21st NHL player to reach the 500 mark for his career.
Messier's goal closed out the scoring that night, as he joined an elite list of 20 other 500-goal scorers, all but one of whom (Dino Ciccarelli) are now in the Hall of Fame.
Messier's goal with 9:35 remaining, tied the game at 4-4 and set the stage for Alexei Kovalev to score the winner a few minutes later.

 The Messier Catalog : Starshine.com
Messier was interested in finding comets, and this list catalogs objects that proved not to be comets.
Due to Messier recording it at a location 4 degrees away, it was considered "missing" for long time until his descriptions were paired up with the object NGC2548.
Messier discovered M88 in 1781, and described it merely as a "nebula without a star".

 SPACE.com -- Spacewatch Friday: Charles Messier, the 'M' Behind M13 and Other Objects
Messier was deeply interested in discovering comets, but he was plagued by the same trouble that besets all comet hunters: He kept finding "comets" that were not comets at all but only star clusters and nebulae.
The 13 comets that Messier discovered and of which he was so proud of are long gone from the inner solar system and forgotten now.
It has been written by many that Messier had consummate skill in making astronomical observations, even though by contemporary standards the telescopes he utilized were inefficient and crude (that fact is made obvious by his description of the Great Cluster in Hercules).

 Messier Object 13
M13, also called the `Great globular cluster in Hercules', is one of the most prominent and best known globulars of the Northern celestial hemisphere.
It was discovered by Edmond Halley in 1714, who noted that `it shows itself to the naked eye when the sky is serene and the Moon absent.' According to Charles Messier, who cataloged it on June 1, 1764, it is also reported in John Bevis' "English" Celestial Atlas.
At its distance of 25,100 light years, its angular diameter of 20' corresponds to a linear 145 light years - visually, it is perhaps 13' large.

Messier, who will be 42 on Jan. 18, appeared in 41 of the Rangers' 82 games last season -- the fewest of his career.

 Multiwavelength Messier 92
Messier 92 is a globular star cluster in the constellation Hercules, located about 12 degrees to the east and north of the more illustrious Hercules Cluster (Messier 13).
Messier 92 is invisible at these long wavelengths, due to the lack of dust in the cluster.
This is often referred to as infrared cirrus, since its appearance resembles the cirrus clouds (of ice) that float in Earths upper atmosphere.

So, if you are wondering what is the best time of the year to observe a Messier object, refer to Appendix C. Appendix C tells you which season to observe each object, each object's coordinates, their NGC numbers, the constellation they are located in, and their sizes and magnitudes.
Also, Appendix C lists all of the Messier objects in the exact same order as the Astronomical League's Observe manual "Observe: A Guide to the Messier Objects", in case you are using that as an observing aide.

 Multiwavelength Messier 13
Perhaps the most familiar of globular star clusters, Messier 13 is found in the constellation of Hercules and contains more than 100,000 stars that are bound by gravity into a spherical configuration.
At these high-energy wavelengths, Messier 13 appears as a weak and concentrated core of emission (yellow/green), coincident with the core of the globular cluster.
The radio emission emanating from the lower left (southeast corner) of the NVSS image does not have a clear association in the ROSAT x-ray image, and hence its identity remains uncertain.

Messier 13 is actually quite a challenge to resolve with small apertures (under light polluted skies).
The brightest actual star in this cluster is 11th magnitude, so even in smallest telescopes it should look granular or glumpy or whatever it is that you call it.
With my own 80mm refractor, Messier 13 cannot be resolved from my 5.8 (faintest star visible) skies.

Halley himself noted that Messier 13 was visible as a fuzzy star to the naked eye (it is 6th magnitude if that attests to early sky conditions!).
Herschel suggested that Messier 13 perhaps had over 14,000 stars, and indeed this cluster contains well in excess of 35,000 stars to limiting magnitude 23, ALL of which are gravitationally bound together around a common orbital center.
