For all those interested in historical observations of comets: I've just added a page on my website with several starmaps of the 18th Century with observations of comets by Charles Messier and his collegues/ rival comet hunters.

The last two days I've spent my spare time on identifying deep-sky objects from Messier's famous list (like M1 - Crab nebula, M42 - Orion Nebula etc.) on the charts. These are now added to the above mentioned page.
You all are the first to find out - spread the word I would say.
I intend to publish more, but I'm running out of space on my present webhost....
