Description

The California Nebula in SHO + RGB stars.

I'd meant for this image to have the star Menkib at the top, but my dithering caused the star to end up too close to the dirty edge and part of it was within my needed crop. So... it's gone
This also took a lot more OIII than I thought for a good signal... and probably could have used a lot more.
