Deep Sky
M110
NGC 205


Dwarf Spiral Galaxy
Constellation: Andromeda
Messier has this one included in his catalogue, but he didn't put it here.  It was added as he drew it as part of the Andromeda Galaxy, M32 in 1773.   This little guy was again 'discovered' in 1783 by Caroline Herschel with her brother William Herschel discribing it in 1785.
M110  is considered a satellite of M32 containing dust and some star formation.  In 1999, Johnson and Modjaz discovered a nova in our little guy.  Lastly, astronomers don't think that M110 has a supermassive black hole in its center.
