From this blog post on the new Fire Detection layer we know that your looking at adding GOES imagery to CalTopo. I trust you putting the bands together for useful overlays but also suggest adding the GeoColor product as a base layer.

Here is a crop of an (unwarped) GOES-17 PACUS image at 1:1 from 8/19 during the recent fires. It would be nice to have fire boundaries and MODIS/VIIRS on top. Not sure how much more zooming the image can stand.
