M33 The Triangulum Galaxy revisited.

I was not happy with last posted image of the Triangulum Galaxy and have now captured more data . This image now comprises over 8 hours of exposure, taken on 13th September 2020 and 10th November 2020. Still not that sharp but think it is going to best I can take with the ED80 scope.

Filters L x28 5 minutes, Red 23 x 5mins, Green 22 x 5mins, Blue 25 x 5mins. All stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and processed in Photoshop CS5.

2.73 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. It is catalogued as Messier 33 or NGC 598. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of the Local Group of galaxies, behind the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy.
