Visiting Crab Nebula (M1) again, this time trying the 2.5x Barlow (base 1000 mm FL) to zoom in. Wanted to get a more detailed view of the tornado-like structure (see earlier images), but too much noise caused by the need to work with a higher gain and short subs (10 s only). Spatial resolution was increased a bit, allowing to get more detail of the structures directly near the pulsar (jets uppler-left and lower right, two arcs around the pulsar perpendicular to the jets. At least maybe ... but there are differences to how the other stars in the image look like.
