      Description

      NGC 1333 is located around 1,000 light years away in the constellation of Perseus. Although the blue reflection nebula dominates, NGC 1333 contains a number of emission nebula. NGC 1333 contains hundreds of young stars less than a million years old. [Information from APOD.]

      NGC 1333 was imaged between 28 December 2018 and 3 January 2019 from a remote imaging rig in Spain owned and operated by Barry Wilson and Steve Milne.
