The California nebula with a surprise!

Al Ernst took this image of the central area of the California nebula with asteroid Semiramis entering at the lower left.  Semiramis shows as a small streak in the lower left quadrant (at the left end of my red line).
Al tells us further that: "Semiramis was the much revered queen of Assyria who may have built the Hanging Gardens of Babylon".  
The image was taken with NP127is, QSI camera, and H alpha filter from Bridgewater, NJ.

 Thanks Al,
