Description

The image was taken with my scope on on a rather windy eveving. There were a lot of small cloud going through so I was quite lucky to get almost one hour of exposure time.
As I took the image at the edge of my city the clouds were relatively brightly lit that evening and even with the 8"-scope the galaxy was hardly visible to the eye.

If you look carefully you can find 4 more galaxys in the image (see Version B). The one on the left is PGC5889 and above M33 from left to right are PGC1928851, PGC1916717 and PGC5694.
