Equipment
Nextstar C11 f/10 with SBIG 8300 M using R, G, B filters. It is the sum of 27 pictures (all 90" long) for each channel, in binning 2x2. The guide scope was a Maksutov 90 mm. The autoguider was an imaging source DBK 21 AF04.
Description
M1: the first object of Messier list, the remnant of the 1054 supernova. The picture was taken from the center of Rome. I can not still believe in what a CCD can deliver, even with a telescope which fork mount is not ideal for long exposure astrophotography.
