This image of M33, the Pinwheel Galaxy in Triangulum, at a distance of some 3 million light years, was made using the Shywatcher refractor telescope that is mounted piggy-back fashion on the LX200R telescope. It was taken using the Starlight Xpress SXV H16 CCD camera. Exposure was 14 minutes for the luminance channel and 4 minutes each for the R, G and B. [Jefferis]
