in November 1965 “The Mamas and the Papas” published their famous song “California Dreamin”. Exactly 50 years later I had the chance to image the California Nebula and publish my image of the California Nebula in memory of “California Dreamin” and “The Mamas and the Papas”.
Imaged in with the Moravian G2-8300 at my Takahashi FS 60 @ f=264mm with the original reducer. L:R:G:B:HA:OIII=160:120:120:120:450:240 minutes. Subexposures were 10 minutes for all frames. Total exposure time was 20 hours.
