Who has brought us the best NGC 1333 in Perseus? Vote for your favorite from the following entries:

astrovirus



Here is my entry, took some 22 hours to gather all the photons (132x 10 min subs, ISO800), taken with my Peltier-cooled Canon 350Da (TEC@5C), calibrated with 36 darkframes, 30 bias frames and 30 flats (for each session). Image was captured using Nebulosity 2.4.4, calibrated/stacked using DSS 3.3.2 post-processed using the DSLR-LRGB method in Photoshop CS3. Image was shot on September 28, 29, 30, and October 1, and 2 2013. Shot from SQM<20 skies.

So here's my target for December. It's another tough one, which is rarely imaged. But as I'm very fond of these dark dusty nebula's, my choice is LBN 777 (Position: R.A. 04 hr 05 min , Dec +26 210 36'), also known as the baby eagle/little vulture nebula. I hope to get a shot at this one myself, but I am troubled by both the weather and an anoying streetlight I can't turn off anymore.

Good luck to everyone.
