Description

M 33 Triangulum Galaxy in RGB + UHC-S

Combination of M33 captured by two different Telescopes :
- Sky-Watcher Dobson 12" (last night) , 60sec /frame. Dominant part: color and inner part
- Meade LightSwitch 8" (a year ago) 30s/frame.

The reason for this :
M33 was close to the moon and high humidity (87%) masked out the outer dim shell of the galaxy.
So I went back to the older image ( http://www.astrobin.com/121671/C/ ) and tried to optimize a bit.
