Description

Post-processing:
The raw file was imported in Lightroom, the white balance adjusted and the vignetting corrected. Then exported as TIFF 16 bit.
Using Gimp, the TIFF file was converted to FIT and processed in FITS Liberator. The Stretch functions used were ArchSinH and square root.
Finally Gimp was used to compose RGB color image with minor adjustments.
