NGC 598 /M 33
« on: October 21, 2016, 05:03:50 PM »
The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy approximately 3 million light-years (ly) from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. It is catalogued as Messier 33 or NGC 598, and is sometimes informally referred to as the Pinwheel Galaxy, a nickname it shares with Messier 101. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of the Local Group of galaxies, which includes the Milky Way, the Andromeda Galaxy and about 44 other smaller galaxies. It is one of the most distant permanent objects that can be viewed with the naked eye.

The galaxy is the smallest spiral galaxy in the Local Group and it is believed to be a satellite of the Andromeda Galaxy due to their interactions, velocities and proximity to one another in the night sky. It also has an H-II nucleus. (Wikipedia)

Nice image, can you include the exposure time and length of exposure and kit, and did you post process with PS?

Ah for the warm nights you must get!

Yes, with pleasure.

This was taken at 25 expo of 12" each one. No filters. Infinity + 200/600 Newtonian Goto.

Then, the image was equalized with GIMP trying to respect the original colors. We have a lot of cloudy nights here too.....maybe tomorrow will change the weather.

This is the plan:
