Hi all,

An image of Messier 1, the Crab Nebula, has been uploaded. It is a very unusual view of the nebula, although it is a fully scientific one. The use of narrow bandpass filters, as well as a different color mapping have contributed to this special color.

You can find this image (as well as a “natural color” one) at:

Messier 1. NGC 1952

  1. Mai no havia vist una imatge semblant sobre una nebulosa. Sembla un cervell amb les seves neurones.
    Suposo que heu captat diferents intensitata d emisions.
    Molt xula.
