I thought I'd give this object a try last night.

LRGB = 38:17:17:17 min. RGB binned 2x2.

Edit: I redid my image for star color, but then cropped most of them out shocked , and I think the nebula color is better. I did lose a little sharpness but I think this version is better

Great Crab Cal! I did this object last night as well, but mine didn't turn out near as nice as yours! I'll post it later, IF I can get it presentable! :S

Here is mine Cal! It's not as good as yours, but hey, I'm a hack!
Cheers,

Very nice crab; you went fairly deep on this one and show lots of detail right out to the extents. I'm not so sure about the colour on this one, though it's always subjective... I see a little too much magenta. It's a keeper though.

Cal,
I just love this object and I like both version 2.0 and 3.0. Great work - congrats.
