Another collaboration with Lorenzo Comolli.

This dusty region lies on the border between Perseus, Taurus and Aries. Apart the large dust nebulae (part of LDN 1450), at least three blue reflection nebula are present: the main one is NGC 1333 at right, then VdB 16 at left and VdB 13 below. Many GN nebulae lies near NGC 1333 and all over the field.
Unfortunately Lorenzo was able to gather too few hours of exposure because of bad weather.

Note about processing: this image has been processed by me with PixInsight 1.8 and then refined by Lorenzo Comolli with Photoshop.

Thanks for the collaboration!

Altra collaborazione con Lorenzo Comolli.

Questa polverosa regione si trova al confine tra Perseo, Toro e Ariete. A parte la grande nebulosa di polvere (parte di LDN 1450), sono presenti almeno tre blu nebulosa a riflessione : la principale è NGC 1333 a destra, poi VdB 16 a sinistra e VdB 13 sotto. Si vedono molte nebulose GN nei pressi di NGC 1333 e in tutto il campo.
Purtroppo Lorenzo è stato in grado di raccogliere solo poche ore di esposizione a causa del maltempo.

Nota sull'elaborazione: questa immagine è stata elaborata da me con PixInsight 1.8 e poi raffinato di Lorenzo Comolli con Photoshop.

Grazie per la collaborazione!
