The Crab Nebula

I thought I’d try the Crab last night through the ED80, as the camera was already attached to it. I was expected a fairly small image, and sure enough, that’s what I got! However, it’s encouraged me to have another go with the LX200 before long!. This was taken using the narrowband filters – the full moon wasn’t very far away – and the colours have been mapped using the Hubble palette of red=SII, green=Ha, blue=OIII. 10 x 5min though each filter.
