IC 348 is the small reflection nebula below the bright star (Omicron Per). To the left and a bit above Omicron is nebular Bernes 66, and to the right and down a little is Bernes 65.
The dark area beneath IC 348 is Barnard 3; the larger dark area at right is Barnard 4.

The revision is a try at smoothing out the background. I think I'm eventually going to dedicate another night to this object and see if that helps.
