Description

I was experimenting with different calibration/integration settings, just to see how they changed, or didn't, the resulting integrations.

This was processed using SubFrameSelector to weight the images, and integrated/drizzle integrated using Adaptive Normalization.

I'd intended to use the same processing as the other IC 2087, but the differences resulted in the processing diverging rather quickly out of necessity most of the time and by choice at other steps.

I decided to keep this one separate from my other processing of this target, to avoid potential confusion of what uploaded version of the prior IC 2087 was the Top Pick.

(I don't think this version will be eligible for TP/IOTD)
