Description

The dark nebula Barnard 22 and the tiny flame-shaped reflection nebula IC 2087 are both part of the Taurus Molecular Cloud, which in turn contains many complex organic compounds in its extensive dusty nebula.

This target has been on my wish list for some time and I am pleased to have finally found the weather to capture this striking target.
