California Nebula RGB-Halpha

The California Nebula is an emission nebula located in the constellation Perseus. It is also known as NGC 1499 or Sh2-220. It has a shape that resembles the outline of the US State of California, which gives it its name. It is about 1,000 light-years away from Earth and spans about 60 light-years across. It is illuminated by the light of the nearby star Xi Persei, also known as Menkib, which is a hot and bright blue star

The California Nebula is a cosmic wonder that reveals the beauty and diversity of our galaxy. This amazing mosaic was taken by me using an H-alpha filter and an astro modified camera over three nights from the Egyptian desert, a place of clear skies and dark nights. You can see the red glow of the nebula, which is caused by the hydrogen gas emitting light when excited by the nearby star Menkib. The California Nebula is about 1,000 light-years away from us and is one of the most spectacular objects in the night sky. If you want to own a copy of this unique and beautiful image, you can order it from my website. Don’t miss this opportunity to support my work and add some California to your wall!
