Description

My second look at Messier 33 with a much longer total integration time. I love M33 for the colorful star forming regions: according to Hubble data, M33 has 10 X the star forming rate of M31. NGC 604 is a good example, it is about 100 X the size of our own Orion nebula.

I used 3x drizzle in DSS to try to bring out more detail, since the C9.25 Hyperstar image scale is under-sampled, even with the mediocre seeing from my location, usually right under the jet stream.
