  Mark Messier Biography, pictures and stats - Hockey Fans
When Gretzky was traded to the LA Kings, Messier emerged as a leader for the Oilers scoring a career high in points and leading them to a Stanley Cup victory in 1990.
As the Oilers continued to dump salaries, Messier was traded to the New York Rangers for Bernie Nicholls, Steven Rice, and Louie Debrusk.
Messier moved on to the Vancouver Canucks in 1997, a move that did not yield the desired results.

 The Messier Catalogue
One of the earliest catalogues of nebulous-appearing objects was prepared in 1781 by the French astronomer Charles Messier (1730-1817).
Messier was a comet hunter, and as an aid to himself and others in his field he placed on record 103 objects that might be mistaken for comets.
Because Messier's list contains some of the most conspicuous star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies in the sky, these objects are often referred to by their numbers in his catalog - for example M31, the great galaxy in Andromeda.

Messier 53 is a very fine globular, bright and large with a "typical concentration" of stars, densely packed into the center.
Charles Messier did not start out his famed astronomy career desiring to catalog "faint fuzzies" in the sky; indeed, he did not even LIKE them....so much so that they were getting in his way of fame by seeking out new comets on a regular basis from his observatory in France.
Messier also noted this was a "...nebula without star...." (yawn), but failed to mention it is huge in the telescope, measuring 8' arc long and 2' arc wide, making it a very interesting cigar-shaped object in medium power.

This fine object is composed of a myriad of minute stars, clustering into a blaze in the centre, and wonderfully aggregated, with numerous outliers seen by glimpses.
It was registered by Messier in 1764; and described by him as a nebula, "unaccompanied by any star." The mean apparent place was carefully differentiated from Eta Ophiuchi.

 Messier Object 53
Its discoverer Johann Elert Bode, who found it on February 3, 1775, described it as a "rather vivid and round" nebula.
Charles Messier, who independently rediscovered and cataloged it two years later, on February 26, 1777, found it "round and conspicuous" and that it resembles M79.
William Herschel was the first to resolve it into stars, and found it similar to M10.

M53 has a bright nucleus about 2' in diameter and a gradually decreasing density profile.
Messier found it resembles M79, while William Herschel found it similar to M10.
As in all globular clusters, the stars of M53 are apparently "metal-poor", which means that they contain only little quantities of elements heavier than Helium (actually mainly elements like carbon and oxygene); those of M53 are even below the average globular cluster members in "metallicity".

This is a very cheap and useful guide, with both large scale finder charts and telescope eyepiece fields for each object (stars down to mag 10), and a well worked out observing order.
In addition, this was a truly wet observing night, with mist in the air at times, wet grass, and dew soaking everything.
Half a Messier Marathon is still much better than I expected from the early weather reports, however.

The general form of elongated nebulae is elliptic, and their condensation towards the centre is almost invariably such as would arise from the superposition of luminous elliptic strata, increasing in density towards the centre.
[..] It [M66] is preceded at about 73s by another of a similar shape, which is Messier's No. 65, and both are in the field at the same time, under a moderate power, together with several stars.
They were pointed out by Méchain to Messier in 1780, and they appeared faint and hazy to him.

 Weasner's Meade ETX Site
Believe it not the first globular cluster was "discovered" by Edmund Halley, of comet fame, in 1715 yet he was not able to distinguish the many thousands of stars which we know today comprise the cluster.
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.

Early in the evening of Tuesday 8 October, I was on the beach at Moss Landing, California, about half way down the shore of Monterey Bay from Santa Cruz to Monterey.
I could probably have pulled in M51 and M101 with averted vision, but they are worth waiting for, so I put the binocular away and drove home.
I am up to 53 Messier objects observed with the 10x50 -- not bad for four short evening sessions.
