Description

This one falls into the "frequently imaged but rarely targeted" category. NGC 604 appears in every image of M33, bit it rarely takes center stage. With the advantage of long focal length and great seeing, I decided to feature this beautiful nebula in M33. This is 150 x 600s OSC subs. The diffraction spikes are from the spider that contains the wires for the Optec SMFS focuser.
