Figure 1. - Perseus likelihoods.

Figure 2. - California likelihoods.

Figure 3. - Taurus likelihoods.

Figure 1. - The left column represents the initial masking performed with a $HI$ width of $70$ km/s to create the initial $N(HI)$ map used in masking, the right, an HI width of $13$ km/s.
The likelihood calculation now includes multiprocessing framework. This speeds up the calculation by around 50% per additional CPU. See this version of cloudpy. Bip has 12 CPUs, so the speed increase is notable.
