Description

This is a two panel mosaic of data collected over three nights of these rather iconic nebulae, IC348(VdB19) and NGC1333. Fortunately these two reflection nebulae are separated by an interesting mix of dark nebulosity, including several from the Bernard catalogue including including Bernard 3 associated with a large patch of Ha nebulosity (this camera is rather good at capturing Ha also without a filter). To increase the details a bit I have added about 50% lum to IC348 and NGC1333 from old 5"refractor data that I had in store.

Olly Penrice just told me on SGL that when he sees that red Ha nebulosity around Bernard 3 he sees a strawberry, and it is easy to agree, so as it has no name maybe we could coin it the Strawberry Nebula?
