Post subject:  Catching a Crab

I had my imaging system set up to capture Comet Encke this evening:
But after that target had disappeared behind a neighbouring roof I noticed that Taurus was high in the sky, so I had a quick go at the M1 Crab Nebula too:

This image was a lot easier to process, as I only needed to register on the stars (not a moving foreground object) and the target is much brighter than the comet anyway.
