Description
With a deep exposure of M1 with a 16' RCX and an appropriate elaboration wiht the algorithm RL you can put in evidence the shockwaves coming out of the pulsar, as leftover of the supernova that generated the M1 nebula. You can compare my picture with the one taken from Hubble, and you can see that indeed the lines above and below the pulsar are exactly where the "halo" of the shockwaves should be.
