It is beautiful and important galaxy, but constant repetitions are boring. There are so much Messier objects, which were never shown....
There are also lots of non-Messier objects, which have never been shown! :lol2:
Do not laugh at me because of my poor English... :(
I think he's laughing because the number of non-Messiers is so vastly greater than the number of Messiers. Not your English.
