I was meant to be imaging NGC1333 with the Hyperstar in Perseus a while back - but a jogged finder scope meant I was imaging elsewhere in Perseus. A bit annoying as the seeing was perfect and I used up 5 hours of prime Hyperstar time in the wrong place. What I have only just noticed in this Noel Carboni processed image is that the background is full of dust (better seen in Rogelio Andreo's version). Shows me that the new mini-WASP array will never match the Hyperstar III for depth and that I will need to make composites whenever I am not imaging star fields with the mini-WASP. Here is the image:

Go into "Actions" click on "View all sizes" click on "Original" to clearly see the clouds.
