This is an old project that was waiting proper processing. It is time dab the dust out from it in a literal and figurative sense :)

NGC1333 is discovered by Eduard Schoenfeld in 1855 and the number is given to the blue reflection nebula. This region is located in the western part of the Perseus molecular cloud at distance 750-800ly from Earth. Recent studies in various wavelengths show huge number of young stars – less than a million years, brown dwarfs and star formation regions. The members of this extremely young cluster buried in the dark nebula are with low and intermediate star masses creating interesting dynamic region to explore the early start evolution.
