Description

IC348 and Barnard 3 (B3). This object is not often imaged since it is not so easy to capture and not really spectacular. Nevertheless I decided to try it instead of standard targets which are much easier in terms of capturing and processing.
This image took me some nights with more than 17 hours of total exposure in rgb so far. My location close to the harbour made it extremely hard to handle the low contrast of the dark molecular cloud Barnard 3 (B3) west of IC348.
I tried to find a way to make the dark clouds visible without too much noise. In the end it would have been more effective to go to a darker place with less light pollution.
