Description: I restacked this image with dark and bias calibration frames. I definitely need to shoot this target again with much more exposure time, but it's fun to see what I can get out of the data I have. I think M33 is one of the most beautiful objects, and it is a perfect size for my scope and camera, so I'm looking forward to imaging it many more times! I used PixInsight's Photometric Color Calibration on the RGB data (before adding Ha or L), which is an amazing tool that gave the galaxy a much more natural blue tint. I'll probably keep playing with this one until I shoot M33 again, but this is definitely an improvement on my first draft.
