If you want to see what Hubble can do on the Crab nebula, take a look here (and that's a mosaic):

HubbleSite - NewsCenter - A Giant Hubble Mosaic of the Crab Nebula (12/01/2005) - Release Images

Although it's better, I'd say that Anthony was pretty close :D Even more amazing when you compare costs - a quick google search says NASA has spent $3billion on Hubble over the years :headbang::D

Thats a stunner of an image ... and as someone has already said, considering your scope costs not even a fraction of hubble lol. We need to send you up in a space observatory :headbang: you can do the job for much cheaper haha....hell, something like would be worth doing for free.
