M1 Crab Nebula


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Celestron c11 sct, skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount, Canon Eos 1100d self-modified and Astronomik CLS CCD clip filter.

Caught some nice detail and colour. Used the star Aldebaran to get the best focus possible before starting my imaging session on this nebula. This definitely helped as my previous efforts were very fuzzy.

14 five minute light frames at iso1600. 20 dark, bias and flats. Deep sky Stacker and Gimp. Cropped to 2421 x 1509 pixels.
