Stellar Shot of the Week 01/04/2017

Posted by Stellarvue on

Joel Short took this wide-field image of NGC1333 using his Stellarvue SV80ST, Optolong LRGB imaging filters and a Moravian G3-16200 camera on his Mach1GTO (with CP4) mount. Joel says, "I just love the field of view my SV80ST (at f/4.5) gives me with my Moravian G3-16200 camera. It's 4.3x3.4 degrees. This image is centered roughly on the border between Perseus, Aries and Taurus and is dominated by dust and scattered reflection nebulae. NGC1333 is the dominant nebula but vdB12, 13 and 16 are visible, as are numerous dark nebulae."

This is a widefield image that straddles the border between 3 constellations, Perseus, Aries and Taurus. There are numerous objects including NGC1333, vdB12, vdB13, vdB16 and several dark nebulas.
