I doubt If Hubble could better this Anthony.

Wonderful result. This must be an APOD candidate for you.

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.

Super shot Anthony.

I've never seen the Crab with that colour mix. Lovely detail.
