NGC 1333, by Paddy Gilliland

This is one of my favourite images shot in my short time in AP. It is of NGC 1333 and comprises of nearly 50 hours of data. 20 hours on my local Borg/QSI 683 combo and another 10 hours on my 10″ RC FLI ML8300 combo. Additional data was acquired from DSW remote observatory – although the merge did cause some frame alignment issue i felt the image was well balance and maintained a nice degree of deep field content with the addition of detail from the RC data.

It was my father who back in 1976 got me into AP when we sat looking at stars in the darkest of nights while on holiday. He quoted “we are all made of stars.” I was shooting this image when he passed and it seemed very fitting as a tribute to him. The star dust making new life seemed to offer some comfort.
