Comments: This is another region in Taurus that contains many dark and dusty nebulae. IC 2087 is the center reflection nebula with Barnard 22 the surrounding dark nebula. I find these nebulae to be very challenging to process. The convensional processing techniques do not always work on these types of targets. The background has been lightened a little bit to bring out the finer details in the dark nebula.
