I was planning to shoot about 6 hours of data for this object but somehow I lost track of exposures so ended up with 15 hours instead

Scope used and reducer: SN6 MPCC
Filter: Astronomik CLS
Mount Used: LXD55
Camera Used: T1i modded
ISO/Exposure: 3200 120"*450

Processed: DSS, Regim (for background flattening) and PS

Any comments and suggestions are welcome!

Nice image Alex! 15h is a lot of time, you can try more aggressive processing to bring out the fainter areas?

Pretty good M33 , Ivo might be right and there could be some hidden data.

15 hours! You have a gold mine. As Ivo says you should stretch this carefully and you should have an excellent picture.

As of now the image is lacking in colors except blue and some faint red. M33 should have more red overall with some large H-alpha regions (which are actually showing now) with some blue sparkles where hot young blue stars are located.
