Messier M33 in Triangulum

M33 Small JPEG

Bizibilder spent all last evening taking pictures of this galaxy.  It is about 3 million light years away and is about 50,000 light years across.  The picture is made from 24 x 2 minute exposures – a total of 48mins exposure.  It is beginning to show some detail but not much colour. (200mm reflector f/5 prime focus 24 x 2 min at ISO 800 Canon 1000D)
