Pulse Profile of Crab Pulsar in Visible Light
This video shows the pulse profile of the Crab pulsar in the visible light. The light curve was obtained using AstraLux camera based on an Andor EMCCD at the Calar Alto 2.2m telescope.
The pulsar at maximum brightness was acquired using an Andor EMCCD along with a custom GPS timing system. This entry was submitted by Mr Felix Hormuth, Max-Planck-Institute for Astronomy, Heidelberg, Germany during Andor Insight Awards.
