    Description

    Here is my first look at this object.
    I will review again in a week when back from a short break but thought I would have a go as a few versions now out there.
    I tried a double sub (actually only 26 lum and fewer RGB subs) approach on each channel taking the standard subs and then blending with a drizzled version that reduced the PSF on the master. Finally blending the two into my final lum and RGB frames.
    Oh and should add as I selected this target thought I better have a go at the data :)
    Rev B - Slight colour and Lum adjustment - this is technically more accurate though I still prefer rev a as an image :)
    Rev C - Little tidy up and more contrast through colour adjustments.
    Rev D & E - Just looking a few final touches not sure which version I like best so going to leave them all up!
