NGC 205

The last item in the Messier Catalogue was not in fact included by Charles Messier himself, but is one of seven objects added posthumously. It is one of the Andromeda Galaxy's pair of satellite galaxies (the other, M32, was catalogued by Messier himself). It is a narrowed Ellipse in form, classified as E6 on the Hubble system.
