Description

Another "not much data" project that I decided to finish. I tried to push the galaxy to get more detail and contrast but blew out some of the star cores.

The inner "star funk" seems to happen by combining color channels that have different levels of saturation in the stars. I tried different linear fit strategies and to patch it with some upper-right-corner curves work but, well, GIGO.
