Here's a small Crab Nebula or M1 and a larger cropped version.  Its clear that I need a longer F.L. scope.  This was imaged in my Bortle 8+ backyard.

 

Imaged with a Sky-Watcher 8” f/4 scope, ASI2600MC Pro OSC camera and an IDAS LPS-P2 filter.  One hundred and six 90 second Light subs including Darks, BIAS, and Flats.  Processed with PixInsight 1.8.8-10.  Compressed JPEG.  Some of the inner core details and colors are lost because of the compression.  Image acquisition software was NINA 2.0 Beta 007, PHD Guide 2 2.6.10 and TheSkyX Pro.  The mount was a Losmandy GM811G.

 

C&C welcome.
