NGC 1333 Work in Progress new

thought it was about time i challenged myself with a notoriously difficult target. This is a reflection nebula in Perseus and like a lot of this type of target they are difficult to image and process requiring lots and lots of integration time. This image is 6hrs worth of data but will it need the same again so its very much a work in progress

Thankfully the good skies in the New Forest allow this target to be imaged as trying this from anywhere with LP would not be an option. I'm pretty happy with what i have so far and once i get more data i think i will have a pretty decent image

Looks like a decent start for that amount of time on it. I agree, this one is difficult.
