Here's a remake of some data I took on NGC 1499 in NB earlier last year, simultaneously with my NP127is/ASI6200MM and TV-85/QHY16200A. The H and S data was pretty strong but the O was very weak, so I didn't get the nice blue wisps surrounding the nebula. I think that if you rotate the nebula 90 counterclockwise it looks like a lobster tail....so I'm gonna call it the "Lobster Tail Nebula" instead of the California Nebula. Anyway, I thought I'd post it none the less.
Hope ya like it!
