SH2-87 is a bit fainter than SH2-88, but they are close enough together that you can get them both in one image if you have a wide enough field of view. There is quite a bit of nebula around SH2-87, which is the brightest area in the center of this image. The nebula does well in H-Alpha if given enough exposure time. I would suggest a very long exposure for a luminance H-Alpha and enough RGB for the color. The brighter part of the nebula picks up fairly well, but you need the time to pick up the fainter areas. There is also a small reflection nebula that can be easily seen in the large full size image with some darker regions around it. So this would be a good target for a very large telescope that would pick up more structure around it.

This massive star formation region is associated with a 7000 solar mass molecular cloud and many sources in the far infrared.
