M33 - The Triangulum Galaxy

Recommended Posts

During my drive back from Devon this evening (been to look at a lovely yellow Labrador with my son), the skies got darker and darker as we approached Sussex but after fish and chips and a nice glass of wine, the sky looked much clearer although still laced with moisture. Surprisingly warm too so no excuse for not getting out there and imaging and I am delighted that that is just what I did. I had expected M33 to be too low in the sky but in fact it was quite well placed.

The following image comprises of 24 subs of 200 seconds each giving a total exposure time of 1 hour 20 minutes taken with a Starlight Xpress SXVF-H9C CCD camera through a SkyWatcher 10" Reflector mounted on a SkyWatcher EQ6 mount. Autoguided via an 80mm ST Refractor.

Very nice, a lot of nebulosity there :wink:

I myself was trying to shoot it last night, but i guess it needs way more than 2-3 mins to pick any of that detail up :D

That's a corker of an image Steve. Incredibly detailed, and one of the best I have seen of that galaxy.
