Although the nights have been clear, seeing conditions beside a very foggy lake have been less than ideal. And while I wait for new equipment to make its way to my door, I've taken to exploring new targets.

NGC 1333 is a reflection nebula partially obscured by the dark nebula Barnard 205. Little specks of red in the darkness indicates stars being born deep in the dust cloud. Hence the reason it is sometimes labeled the Embryo Nebula.
