Astrophotography – Triangulum Galaxy (M33), again

The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy around 2.7 million ly. away from Earth. It is located in the constellation Triangulum. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of the Local Group of galaxies, right after the Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way. For me this one of the best pictures I was able to capture so far. And again it is amazing to see what is possible with an amateur telescope and a mid-range CCD camera!
