Description

A complete re process of some old data. Really wanted to focus on fixing some of the ~1px stars in both M81 and M82 both ended up with ringing on them before as well as bringing out the background IFN.

The only thing I really enjoyed more in the previous version was the color balance, but this one seems to look a bit more realistic in terms of color so I think others will probably prefer that on this image as well.
