A four panel mosaic of part of the Large Molecular Cloud in Taurus

I love Dark Nebulae and The Large Molecular Cloud in Taurus has to be one of my favourites. This is a four panel mosaic featuring IC2087, IC2088 and NGC1539. Imaged remotely from Spain with the Epsilon 180ed and full format ZWO ASI2400MC Pro.  Exposures were 45 x 300s for each panel. Processed in Pixinsight and Photoshop, this was a real challenge for noise control but to be fair it is  dark stuff in a dark sky so I'll take it for what it is.
Thanks for looking
Peter Shah

Peter - just lovely image - I would love to image dark nebula and should give it a go  - I saw an image from urban astronomer down in Bristol and he captured the Shrk from his city location - not easy but he did it.

 

Your image is wonderful and really shows how much 'stuff' is actually out there in space

Yes I think I saw that one, Although a dark site benefits the dark stuff  this particular region is actually quite bright  possibly due to the underlying glow from stars. I wouldn't be at all surprised if this could be done from a site with a bit of LP

I love this image and the processing, bringing out the glow behind the dark nebulae and yet keeping the sky background dark at the same time. 

 

I can see how massive it is as I did an image of this area, which I can just see peeping into the top right LBN782 which is tiny in comparison to this.
