NGC1333

My first attempt at NGC1333, which is a reflection nebula in the constellation Perseus.

There's quite a lot going on in the LRGB image below which represents just over 14 hours integration time and was taken with my Esprit 150: a blue reflection nebula, dark dusty lanes and intense areas of star formation. These latter regions contain an impressive collection of Herbig Haro objects which are formed when narrow bands of very rapidly moving partially ionized gas, ejected by the proto stars, collide with by nearby gas and dust.
