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

Luminance = 15 minutes binned 1x1
Red = 6 minutes binned 2x2
Green = 6 minutes binned 2x2
Blue = 6 minutes binned 2x2

  • Image needs a bit more exposure time.
  • Three 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.
