Around a week ago I started imaging NGC 1333 under very bad conditions, the first tonights where around 50 images of 5 minutes, the 3 night I added 61 subs, there is something strange in the upper left corner going on which I can only explain by a very fast moving Alien space craft ... anyway the explanation is probably less shocking but none the less I want to know, anyone? I've been using this scope for years and never saw a reflection and the 10 hours of RGB data last year with another camera shows no trace ...

 

First 2 nights:

Lol this is the closest thing that I have seen to a clickbait post... Tbh, the upper left trail is also seen on the first image.

Absolutely! Though this is a slow moving craft. When they crank it up you can't see them. Nice capture. Call the Examiner. Or the Daily Planet.

Then it's a slow spacecraft... A V8 engine at most for sure.

Btw, use sigma clipping during integration and destroy that pesky alien before it wrecks Earth. Also, nice picture...

No clue, so I'm going to guess intergalactic chemtrails! :)

Nice picture (despite your suspect diagnosis!).

I did ...

So it's visible during several hours ...

Oh someone else captioned it as well on SGL ... 

Very intriguing!

If you create a video using each frame separately, that might help figure this out.  Perhaps it's two objects side by side that are slowly moving.  If so, I'd say a constellation of geosynchronous satellites . . . except that this is at 30N, not on the equator.  I love astronomical mysteries!

I'm now stacking without Sigma clip, the individual images are of low SNR ... I doubt I can even see it in a single frame

No Sigma clip stack, there are more stripes:

What is it????

I see at least 3 of the same pattern. Bugger fleet?

Look at the bottom left center of the non-sigma image.  There is something similar there too, just not as bright.  Has the same gaps where I'm assuming you were not capturing.

Yeah according to SGL member there are 3 more in the image not as bright:

left under = (7652) 1991 RL5 (mag 16.2)

Center right, upper: (38819) 2000 RX75 (mag 17.4)

Ceter right, lower: (7180) 1991 NG1 (mag 17.3)

If they are different objects, they are traveling at the exact same speed based on the identical gap spacing.  So either one alien ship intercepting another, or the same aberration appearing:
