Triangulum Galaxy V2.0

We shot Triangulum Galaxy (M33) already as one of the first-light targets at the TURMX setup. Well, this beautiful spiral galaxy deserves a little more attention, so we added a couple of hours of extra exposure time and reprocessed the combined data set.

With more than double the exposure time, this image brings out the background luminosity throughout the galactic disk. Make sure to view this image in full size and resolution by clicking on it.
