Many will agree that this is a difficult object for beginners, but that once it is found, it is easy to locate in the future.
Find it by scanning about one-third of the way from Alpha Trianguli to Beta Andromedae.
You must have a good, dark, clear night. Use binoculars first. M33 is large, but it has a low surface brightness and you will need the wide view of a pair of binoculars.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
You will be seeing a spiral galaxy face-on. What you will be aware of, however, is not the beautiful spiral arms but a hazy nebula which does not seem to have a very well defined shape.
Some observers put this on their list of great deep sky objects, while others would reject it as worthy of repeated viewing. What would you say?
