I had much higher hopes for this one. This little fella was TINY on the final frames. I had to use 3x Drizzle to get what you see here. Without drizzle it was a complete disappointment. I think I just need to stick to bigger targets. :-\

The stars were too cyan for my tastes, but when I desaturated them even a little, they just went monochrome.
