Along the upper edge of the picture are three HII emission nebulae IC 1848, IC 1805 and IC 1795 (from left to right) barely visible. Above h Persei (that is the right one of the two) is Stock 2, another open cluster containing dimmer stars that are not as concentrated as h Persei and its companion.
There is some vignetting visible resulting from taking the picture with the lens stop fully open.
