Hi there everybody,

I'm pretty new to the forum. It's also my first time imaging The California Nebula. It is larger than my camera's field of view. I imaged over 2 nights and still think I didn't get enough data. Trust me the small image that I'm posting does not truly reflect the large image. Let me know what you think.

Was pleased to see your image and your equipment list. Same camera and OTA. Still working out the kinks as I jumped in over my head building an observatory. It is nearly complete so eagerly looking forward to some imaging this winter.
