M1 Crab Nebula Imaged by Tim Shott

The Crab Nebula (M1) supernova remnant in the Taurus constellation, was pretty well elevated in the night sky for Tim Shott's new 10" TPO RC truss telescope on a Losmandy G11 mount a couple days after Christmas 2017.

He made 10 minute subs totaling 2 hours of exposure with no darks, no flats and no bias.
He doesn't say what he used for post processing but I know he has used BackyardNikon in the past.

It appears that he already has a good knowledge of the functions and settings of his new Nikon D810a ~  looks like it did a pretty good job getting this image for him... Well done Tim.
