Crab Nebula evolving over 10 years

Have you all seen this incredible image made into a video, of the crab nebula taken over 10 years.
I believe it got an APOD.

Thanks Carole ~ quite amazing piece of photography!  You do need to watch it and study it for a bit as the action seems all in the middle but a closer look shows the whole nebula expanding.

Also amazing that he took the image over 10 years and managed the same processing on each, unless he saved them all and re-processed them all at the end.

The stars all seem to be changing intensity as well over the course of the 10 years,

Could just be different processing on the different files.
