M 33 taken under excellent conditions. Unfortunately some purple came into the halo on the right side, I probably needed more data for those extremely faint details with my OSC-camera. Ah well, reasons to return and improve on next time :-).

With many thanks to Hans Hoogkamer for providing me with this opportunity in general, providing the material, providing a stay and much more! Also thanks to Janina Martynaityte and her mother for providing the good care during my stay in Maroc. Could not have done this without them!
