This is the famous crab nebula as seen through the great Samy tele lens. The combination of the small pixels and the fantastic optical resolution of the lens is quite perfect for such small objects. Unfortunately there was no time left for more OIII frames and additional SII frames due to upcoming clouds...
Enjoy it!
