The Triangulum Galaxy is a spiral galaxy 2.73 million light-years (ly) from Earth in the constellation Triangulum. It is catalogued as Messier 33 or NGC 598. The Triangulum Galaxy is the third-largest member of the Local Group of galaxies, behind the Andromeda Galaxy and the Milky Way. 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 is believed to be a satellite of the Andromeda Galaxy or on its rebound into the latter due to their interactions, velocities, and proximity to one another in the night sky. It also has an H II nucleus.
Supplementary Data or Comments

This image was a creation of boredom. On a cloudy day with little to do I took the data from my earlier shot of M33 and put it together with the data from a later image I collected. With much bending, folding, spindling and mutilating I managed to get the images scaled and lined up correctly for a pseudo-stack in Photoshop. It was fun.
