First light image of the M33 galaxy taken in 2013 from the 0.76m (30 in) telescope at the Astronomical Research Institute in Illinois, USA, using the new CCD camera provided by a Planetary Society Shoemaker NEO Grant. The usual job of the telescope will not be imaging galaxies, but rather doing follow-up observations of near Earth asteroids.
