The IC2087 Region of the Taurus Molecular Cloud

This is a 2-frame mosaic using the Canon 200mm prime lenses and the Trius M26C OSC CCDs. The left hand side of the frame is the IC2087 region and the right hand side has the bright star SAO76573 in the centre – north is up. Each frame is 10-hours of 20-minute subs so the whole image is 20-hours in the making. This region is just a small part of the massive Taurus Molecular Cloud.
