    So far my favorite based on how the object looks is M42. It is an absolutely amazing sight. With that being said, I think my favorite is probably M81/M82. Not so much for its stunning beauty but because you have two galxies that can be seen in the same field of view.

    M42/M43 ... because everyone can see them from anywhere in the world, even with the naked eye ... and NGC 1977 is very close by ... along with all the "other sights" associated with Orion ...

    As well as most of us (I guess) M42 is my favorite, and well M43 as well. The next in line are NGC 7635 (The Bubble Nebula) and M16 (Eagle Nebula).

    My all around favorite visual, binocular, and scope messier object is M31 the Andromeda galaxy.

    My favorite for the naked eye is M45 Pleiades (Subaru).
    My favorite for the binoculars is M44 Beehive cluster.
    My favorite for the scope is M42 Orion Nebula.

    Anytime these are out I look them over, no matter what else I am doing.

    I can't see all of them from my latitude (-30°), but I love globular clusters. M22 is really beautiful!
