Crab Nebula

Crab Nebula on Feb 22, 2020. 122×30 sec @ Gain 37, Offset 15, -20C, QHY183c, UHC-S filter, Televue TV-85 at F/5.6.

Just over an hour’s worth of exposure for this one.   This was the 2nd object of the night, the first being Betelgeuse, which was only a few frames.

I had better conditions for this shot at the beginning of the session than later in the night for other objects.   Too bad it didn’t stay like that.

While shooting this, two older ladies came by to see what I was doing.   Interesting conversation, but I think I went right over their heads trying to explain a supernova remnant.   LoL!  🙂
