Reflection nebula NGC 1333 is currently the most active region of star formation in the Perseus molecular cloud. It is a wonderful example of a reflection nebula embedded with an open
star cluster. This object holds hundreds of "young" (less than one million years old) stars, most of which are hidden in the dense dust clouds.
I have imaged this target in the past with my Esprit 120. I wanted a slightly wider field this time so I used the William Optics Star 71.
