color production was used to create this image.
Luminance = 105 minutes
Red = 20 minutes
Green = 20 minutes

Two iterations of L-R deconvolution (sharpening) algorithm using
CCDsharp were 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.
