Triangulum galaxy

Best viewed large

 

Otherwise known as M33 is one of the nearest galaxies to us and is the smallest member of the local group of galaxies.

 

This photo was taken with a Canon 20D through an Orion 80ED refractor, which was itself piggybacked on an 11" Celestron Schmidt Cassegrain. The scopes are mounted on a Losmandy G11 equatorial mount. No autoguiding was used for this photo, a stack of 20 shots at 300 seconds each.
