Colourful California

I have been busy on this for a few weeks trying to finish it between the rain and cloud. This is a difficult subject in OIII as I couldn't detect any at all on the downloaded subframes. Anyway, after a fair bit of stretching I've got an end result that I'm happy with. I've just got a new computer and the screen is quite bright and contrasty compared with the old one so I've had to desaturate the colours a bit. This was taken with the Televue/FLI system that I'm testing. Exposures are 20x10 minutes Ha, 24x10 minutes OIII and 18x10 minutes SII and then assigned to the HST palette.
The full size image can be found at the following link

Thanks for looking
Best wishes

Currently using a Tele Vue NP127/FLI (Atlas/Centreline/PL16803) prototype imaging system. Paramount ME. OS Falco guide scope and SX lodestar.
