Dark Nebulae

    What techniques do you folks use to identify Dark Nebulae?

    I look at the dark patches and compare them to the background blue stars - where they appear far less numerous and bright I think they might be good dark nebula candidates.

    Is it likely that we can see the dark clouds of dust behind foreground stars?

    Whichever way - those dark patches are quite evocative when you find them. They look like ink blots!

    What do you guys think?
