A hydrogen alpha shot of the California Nebula from my backyard! This is an emission nebula in the constellation of Perseus, so named because of its resemblance to the state. At a distance of 1000 light years from earth, this large nebula is illuminated by the nearby bright star xi Persei at the top of the image.


Available in Canvas, Metal, and Fine Art prints.  Art prints are on Kodak Endura Metallic paper.  Please contact me for pricing on sizes not listed.
