I took some frames of M33 in 2016 under some substantial light pollution caused by the moon.
Then I processed in DSS and discarded my result. Facing lots of cold and overcast nights this winter I dug in it again, this time using PixInsight. It is still a lousy M33 but to date my only one, so I publish it here for practice :-)
