Description

My first mosaic, a two-pane SHO in HST palette. There are some residual artefacts, maybe I'll collect some more data that isn't effected by moonlight - we'll see. I now truly understand the effort required to not only collect the data but to process it as well.

Revision C: reworking old data with much better processing skills! Despite Linear Fit equalisation of the two panes, the Pelican really has suffered with loss of contrast from the moonlight present when I collected the data.

Thanks for looking,

Barry
