Description

Here is the first image from the wonderful skies in Kenton, Oklahoma at the Okie Tex Star Party 2016. For this trip, my dad and I decided to collaborate on a handful of dusty targets to make the most of our time here. With my higher resolution and cleaner QSI 690 I captured lum data while he acquired our color data with the STT 8300, both on TEC 140's. This target probably could've used a good bit more time, but it was a bit of a feeler target and we were really excited about a couple other objects we were shooting and decided to move on. The processing on this proved to be very challenging as everything in the field was very diffuse and lacking of any strong features. However, it was a fun challenge and I'm pretty pleased with the results. As always, I'm always happy to hear any of your C&C's! Thanks for looking.
