Messier 33 or Pinwheel Galaxy in my 60x828 mm refractor

Messier 33 or ''Pinwheel  Galaxy'' as seen through my 60x828 mm refractor telescope
on November 1st , 2015.

The magnification of 33x was obtained with a Sirius Plossl 25mm ocular,
field of view = 1,57 degree , a prism diagonal was used.
Only the core of the galaxy was visible.
However, this observation was made from the middle of a 200.000 city.

The very fine objective of this refractor telescope was created by my friend Silviu aka ''zoth''.
