The Galactic anticenter region including the Crab nebula has been observed with the COMPTEL gamma-ray telescope on the Gamma Ray Observatory. A map of the region in the 1-30 MeV energy range is presented. The total spectrum of the Crab is derived as well as that of the pulsed and unpulsed components. Upper limits on the pulsar Geminga are also presented.
