Here we have a look at the infrequently seen NGC 5363/5364 and a few local deep sky objects in Virgo.
This was a challenge to process having to be very delicate and patient with any detail, lots (and i mean lots) of small iterations provided the detail whilst, hopefully, not being too aggressive and keeping the overall image with a nice clean feel.
