That's really nice. The color is gorgeous.

My wife walked into the room and exclaimed "Wow! What's that? That's pretty awesome. That's not yours is it?" She then chuckles and says" You'll learn how to process images ... someday."

Nice work Jeff. Really bright and full of detail, yet does not look "overdone".

Definitely not, Jamie. Sunnyvale is right under the SF Bay Area light plume (San Jose / South Bay portion). The LRGB was captured mostly at a very dark site in Mercey Hot Springs, CA, about 130 miles south of here in the Little Panoche Valley (San Benito County). Transparency and seeing were excellent. The Ha was collected at 2 closer locations up in the hills around us under fairly mushy conditions. The closest (Montebello Open Space Reserve) is only 25 minutes drive for me but gets plenty of SF Bay light plume in those directions.
Clear skies,
