Description

This was a particularly difficult capture due to various gremlins in my system. In addition, this object seems to take a lot of time to bring out the detail. I lost quite a bit of the field of view due to a reflection. This is also the first time I have not dithered in a long time. This image really shows the benefit of dithering, or more appropriately stated the increase in noise due to the lack of dithering. This is a beautiful psychedelic object!
