Description

Have not done much HST images yet and the post-processing of this image turned out to be a big, big challenge to me; mainly the channel combination producing all kinds of hideous colours, except for the nice faint blue i was after. After many retries and applying some harsh paint-by-numbers guerrilla tactics it sort-of comes in the vicinity of what it is supposed to look like :-) Will try again later...maybe.
