Hi all, here is my first look at the data on this target. There are more subs due so have another look again in near future. Thanks to all at DSW.
Have tried not to push too hard or kill stars - just trying to let the data do the work :)
Feedback welcome - though colours are of course subjective in NB anyway.
Rev C - Minor tweak for those who like slightly more subtle tones. I am undecided :) + Removed purple glow around larger stars (Thanks LLoyd)
