Mike Lancaster captured this image of The Crab Nebula on the 16th January 2023. It is a stack of eight 2 minute exposures taken using a Mallincam Universe camera at 22dB gain and full resolution through an Orion Optics UK AG12 astrograph. A 0.95x Wynne Corrector and Hutech IDAS LPS-D3 light pollution suppression filter were also employed. This setup was mounted on an EQ8 mount guided using a Lodestar camera using PHD2 through a piggybacked ST-80 refractor. The images were stacked in Deep Sky Stacker and processed in Nebulosity. No darks or flats were used.
