M1 The Crab nebula - my first decent image of 2021

The winter has not been great so far with heavy clouds and rain for most of January. February 10th 2021 was predicted to be clear and it was all night with temperatures dropping to -5C. My mount played up and the hub refused to work but I eventually managed to get 2hrs of decent images of the crab.
