That is absolutely lovely! Very 3 dimensional.

Subject: [ap-ug] California Nebula in SHO
So this is my first time imaging my home state's namesake nebula. I took a bit of RGB for the stars. I'm testing out Russell Croman's new StarXTerminator plugin for PixInsight, and it does a much better job of removing stars than starnet. It's considerably faster as well.
I was originally intending to orient this upright like a CA map, but I'm not a fan of images with this skinny aspect ratio in a portrait orientation and I didn't want to crop anything. Now had I done a mosaic or sprung for the full frame QHY600 and had more to work with, I probably would have.
