Description

I got a little obsessed with the Crab in early December and imaged it for 4 nights straight. I combined that data with an earlier session in November for a total of 23hrs of integration time, mostly 3minute subs.

I split the Ha and Oiii channels in APP and recombined them in Photoshop.
