Robotic Telescope Requested: MDRS-14

Objects to be Imaged this Evening (if weather permits): Crab Nebula, Whirlpool Galaxy, and Dumbbell Nebula

Objects Already Imaged: Pinwheel with MDRS-14 and MDRS-WF, Whirlpool Galaxy with MDRS-WF, Crab Nebula

Problems Encountered: In the Pinwheel and Whirlpool Galaxies as well as the Crab Nebula images, it is difficult to make out the objects, even after processing. Perhaps with the MDRS-14 they will come out clearer.
