Description

NGC 1333 and IC 348 are reflection nebulae embedded in the star-forming region called the Perseus molecular cloud.
You can find it in the constellation of Perseus, positioned next to the southern constellation border with Taurus and Aries.
NGC 1333 (at top of image) is associated with a dark cloud L1450 (Barnard 205). Estimates of the distance to this nebula range from 980–1,140 light year. 
IC 348 (at bottom of image) is a 2 million year old open star cluster surrounded by a reflection nebula of about 15 light-years across, located some 1000 light-years away from Earth.

This widefield LRGB-image is acquired with the Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor and FLI PL16803 camera from Telescope Live in IC Astronomy Observatory, Oria, Spain.

Total integration time 400 minutes
LRGB: 10 sub-frames of 600s with each filter.
