Visually larger than the moon, M33 is one of our celestial neighbors. Part of the Local Group it is a little more than 2 million light-years away. This is about the same distance as is M31, the Andromeda Galaxy.

This image was made during first light for my new scope, an eight inch Celestron reflector, the R200ss.
