Whoa, that's the California nebula? Holy cow! Looks like the blue gas is plowing into a wall of yellow gas and bowing it as it tries to break through. Amazing. Without a doubt, that is the most amazing image I have ever seen of it.

I've got to say, when I saw this my jaw dropped. Never in my life did I imagine, after decades of amateur images and a lot of pros that such an astonishing brilliance and color differential even existed here much less captured. I'm am more than blown away. This is just awe.

Maybe the most beautiful picture I have seen on CN, and maybe one of the most beautiful I have ever seen anywhere.

 

A target that rarely gets any attention from CN members, or at least they don't show their images much if they are imaging this one.

 

A remarkable piece of work.   Thank you so much for sharing it.

Awesome and beautiful colors!

 

Has this image been cropped from the original as the top of the nebula looks like it's over flowing the frame?

Thank you very much for the comments. :flowerred: 

 

I did not crop an image, only 5% because of the stack.
