Description

The California Nebula in Bi-Color with RGB Stars. I really like how dynamic this turned out with just Ha and OIII. This is the first time I have imaged this target after imaging for nearly 3 years now. I had always put it off in the past because I just didn't think it was, well very dynamic. I was obviously wrong :-)
