I started this object at the end of december last year, certainly a bit late for its position in the sky.
Then a lot of nights were necessary to get the subs at the beginning of each night session:
6 Nights : 27 , 29 december and 07 of january , 05 of february, 02 , 03 of march

Red 46 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Blue 30 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Green 29 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
Light 86 subs@180s -20°C, gain zero

NGC 1333 is a reflection nebula located in the constellation Perseus. It belongs to the Perseus molecular cloud. In 2011 researchers reported finding 30 to 40 brown dwarf objects in the cloud and in the Rho Ophiuchi cloud complex. It was discovered by the SPITZER space telescope. (cf. wiki)
