- LRGB image of M33, the Triangulum Galaxy
- composed of 16 x 900 sec subs for each, luminance, red, green, and blue
- using the new and wonderful data from Deep Sky West

- processing done with true plus synthetic luminance, keeping noise reduction at the minimum not to destroy the granularity in the galaxy
- will add Ha data later, although Ha regions are quite prominent already

- have a look at the full-size view...
