L R G B color production was used to create this image.

Luminance = 130 minutes binned 1x1
Red = 50 minutes binned 2x2
Green = 50 minutes binned 2x2
Blue = 50 minutes binned 2x2

  • Two iterations of L-R deconvolution (sharpening) algorithm using CCDsharp was applied to the luminance image.

  • Digital Development (DDP) via Maxim/DL was also used in order to display the the very dim and very bright details of the image simultaneously.
