M33 – Triangulum Galaxy

Messier 33 – Triangulum Galaxy, 2021-10-07.

So, I have been waiting and waiting for the clouds and rain to go away but have been out of luck ever since my first session. Even though the weather forecast was telling me that I would have to wait even more I saw some moments of clarity and went for it.

I got my gear setup in order, did a polar alignment and slewed to a couple of objects. After some test frames and problems with focus I decided to stay on M33. That resultet in the below image in the end.

30 x 120 second exposures and a total integration time of 1 hour.
ISO1600, bortle 4 + various high clouds.
