M1 - The Crab Nebula


Recommended Posts

From Halloween night.

1hr 25 mins of Lum in 5 min subs. Bin 1x1

20 min each of RGB in 5 min subs. Bin 2x2

Processed in Maxim and Photoshop.

I've spent hours processing this - not sure if the colour is right or not?

Every image I look at of The Crab, seems to be different in colour!

Comments and advice welcome please - particularly on the processing, which is an area I'm really trying to improve on now.

Thanks for looking.

Hi Barry,

You have treated the neb quite well enhancing the filaments and the colour is good. I know what you mean though as many versions exist. I can make out a gradient in the background from left to right - reddish in colour. Don't know if you can see that, but treating it would top off a very fine image

Thanks for the comments everyone.

Anthony - you are right about that gradient...I've tried to get rid of it and have now uploaded the corrected version. Thanks for that. Concentrating so much on the fine points - overlooked a simple? thing like a gradient!!
