M33 is a close neighbour to our own Milky Way, it’s also structurally similar being a nice open spriral. This is probably how our own galaxy would look from a distant vantage point. This image is an LRGB composite where separate luminance and colour data were collected and processed, then the resulting channels combined to produce the colour image you see.
