Greetings friends in astronomy / astrophotography. I present my astrophoto this morning 10/25/2013. The M1 – Crab Nebula!

It took 153 light and 110 to iso 800 darks to capture this beauty from the fields of Caguas. This object of deep space is a remnant of a supernova. It is located in the constellation Taurus at 6300 light years from Earth. First seen in 1054 by Chinese and Arab astronomers.

It is indeed a beauty! Thank you Fernando!
