Image of the Month - May 2020

Thumbnail Title: 

Congratulations to pgoldsmith18 who submitted this beautiful image of Messier 1 a.k.a. The Crab Nebula which we have chosen as our May competition winner.

i recently searched the archive for pictures of messier 1 and then put the images through LT image. i like the way this turned out because the green highlights the middle of the nebular and the outside has a tint of red"

You can make your own image of the Messier 1 by searching our archive for observations and using software such as LTImage to process them.
