thanks to ferran's image [here](http://astrobin.com/8179) i was able to compute a proper background model for this reprocessed image. because of the CLS filter everything is blue to begin with and it would have been impossible to tell where to try to sample the background for gradient removal.
If this image is the result of your processing of a public data pool, you can send it the pool so it's displayed there.
