    Default M33 The Triangulum Galaxy



    This image was taken on October 6th and is of M33 and was processed in ImagesPlus. M33 is also called the Triangulum Galaxy, and is 3 million light years from Earth. It is sometimes informally called the Pinwheel Galaxy, a nickname it shares with M101. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third largest member of the local group of galaxies, which includes the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and about 30 other smaller galaxies. It is one of the most distant permanent objects that can be viewed with the naked eye.

    M33 9 x 180 sec ISO 1600 with 5 darks, flats & bias.
    Canon 60da
    Celestron 1100hd with focal reducer
    CGEMDX mount
    Guiding with PHD via SSAG on Celestron 80mm guidescope.

    Comments/suggestion are always welcome - thanks for looking.

    Hi Paul. I can see why it is also called the Pinwheel Galaxy. This is a beautiful image from you, with those pretty sparkly spiral arms. Included are some nice dark dust lanes too. Thanks for the superb Triangulum Galaxy capture, and best of regards.

    Hey Paul, haven't heard from you for awhile! Great image! How's the guiding working out? I chucked my SSAG for a ZWOASI120MC and ASCOM pulse guiding---wow what a difference!! Get consistent RMS about .13. That little camera is sweet. I'm imaging M33 as I write this. Anyway, great image!!

    I really like the image because it looks so natural, not over saturated. What's cool is most all the stars are round, no matter what size they are and therefore the image has great depth of field, almost 3D like. You can see this effect clearly when the image is magnified.

    My SSAG works great for me. I just purchased the Canon 60Da so that's it for a while. I gotta watch my budget - the wife is great and lets me spend whatever I want - so I really have to be responsable - lol. The weather is getting colder as I noticed in my last outing - I wasn't dressed for it and that made for a less than fun evening. I also learned another lesson - realize what your equipment is best suited for. Earlier in the evening a spent quite a bit of time imaging the North American Nebula - NGC7000 (see pic below). I just managed to get a piece of it.
