Although I have uploaded enough M33's I have to add this. It's one of my favourites, probably the deepest and I think my best version of this galaxy.
The picture consists of 13 L, 9 R, 8 G and only 7 B subframes. I had to delete some because of their poor quality caused by sloppy dome tracking (manual tracking, no electrical computerized dome control).
Hope you like it a little,
