Skywatcher MN190 and M1 Crab Nebula

Recommended Posts

The weather has been awful, clear patches, then fog / cloud making it so frustrating to try and get images.

Still getting used to the astrograph mak-newt, but managed to get a few subs of the Crab Nebula under about 5/10 seeing conditions.

Taken on the MN190 and QHY9 + HaLRGB filters.

About 3 hours of LRGB (5min subs) and 30mins of Ha 8nm (10 min subs)

Guided via side by side ADM on EQ6 Pro and QHY5 / ED80.

Processed with MaximDL, PHD, CS5 and DSS

You got the crab well enough ;) though I can see where you got buzzed by the cloud (gets a bit milky towards the bottom right of the frame). It still better than my M1 effort though, you seem to have a lot more red than I got.

The red is the Ha content mapped into the red channel.

The wonderful world of F5...

That is great and in double quick time. You could easily flatten the background sky just by giving it a wipe with the burn tool set to shadows, about 3 percent, big brush, big feather. I hardly think it matters anyway, really.

Great stuff, more to come!

Nice Steve, I have been doing this one myself just recently.

You might like to try the Ha data merged with the Green channel, the incredible HST version of this doesnt seem to use the normal colour mapping.

Might give this a go TJ for fun..

Can't wait for a proper clear night and I can get 10+ hours on a target.

M51 is definetely in the sights for this.
