M1 - Crab Nebula

Messier 1 - Considerably better than my previous attempts at this object. Taken with reasonable guiding, with reasonable seeing conditions (allowing for the light pollution). I had a restricted time window for this image caused by a combination of cloud and the target getting close to roofs of houses. I tried a different technique to deal with the light pollution, by putting a light pollution filter on the front on the filter wheel nose and then imaging as normal. The addition of the extra filter did not affect the parfocal nature of the Xagyl LRGB filters used. For more information the AstroBin Link is: http://www.astrobin.com/243527/
