Fantastic results Cat! I'd like to know a little more detail about your mix of the LRGB and Ha for future reference.

I like it very much! Do you live in a non light polluting area?

Very 3 it a lot. Didn't know anything about M1 until I got into astronomy a few years ago, and I think it's my favourite. I just love to wonder how amazing it looked in 1054, and how it's changed over the centuries. I keep looking north of it, to Betelgeuse, and hoping that'll go in my lifetime...

I'm the same Adrena1in. M1 not only looks good, it's got history.
It's now about 12 light years across. That's nearly 3 times the distance from here to Alpha Centauri and it's only taken 1000 years to do it. The background (non-red) color is caused by electrons being bent by the magnetic field from the remnants of the supernova (now a pulsar) and that pulsar is only about the size of Honolulu. That's rather mind-blowing IMHO.

I was trying to decide if I'd go after M1 or the Horsehead for my next target. If that's 3 hours and you're a stop faster than me, this one might have to wait for next year.
That's a very nice image Cat. I like that you haven't cropped it, which also adds to the depth.
