Hello all,

 

   Another day, another painting. 

 

The progress of this list is slower than I would like it to be, but it is moving. 

 

M1 Crab Nebula By Ahmad Alromeadheen 1200.jpg

 

So far, I am done with M45 and M5. I am not sure what is next.

 

Let me add a story to go a long with this post:

 

I had a very difficult time finding this celestial object from my binocular. I did see it under an eleven inch aperture Schmidt Cassegrain telescope at a star party in Mt. Pines at Frazier Park in California in summer 2007.

 

Thank you for reading.

 

-Ahmad

Very nice rendition! And indeed interesting that Messier's #1 non-comet turns out to be a Supernova Remnant, with the distinguishable, spinning ball of Neutrons. Right in the middle are two close stars. The dimmer one IS that neutron star. It ~blinks~ 30 times a second. I have seen it with a 29-inch telescope and will be trying a 36 soon. It's a rather dim dot, but just knowing what it is makes the view exciting.  Tom
