The Triangulum Galaxy (M33) in Triangulum Constellation is a part of our local group of galaxies. Due to its more famous galaxy, The Andromeda galaxy it gets over shadowed a bit. This galaxy has low surface brightness making it a bit challenging to process. Austin's light pollution also doesnt help with recovering contrast. This has lots of knots of star forming regions (red regions) and lots of young star clusters (blue stars in its arm). One of the star forming region is so large that we can see some details in it from this distance and has its own designation (NGC604). There are lot of dark filaments visible in the core as well.

This is shot with Takahashi FSQ106ED for luminance and Takahashi E130D for color data . Mount is AP900 and filters are Astrodon Gen2 LRGB as well as 3nm Astrodon Ha filter

Total integration time is: 12 hours
L = 7 hours
Ha = 2 hours
RGB = 3 hours
