This image of M33 Triangulum Galaxy was captured in September 2013 and reprocessed in June 2015. This was my first effective usage of PixInsight’s Dynamic Background Extraction (DBE) processing tool which I applied individually to each LRGB channel.  It was helpful in removing color gradients in the image, allowing me to get more aggressive with color and background levels.

This beautiful galaxy is about 2.7 million light years away and is visible to the naked eye from very dark skies.
