Description

Just in time for Halloween...

This is a target I have been hoping to process for a while and have always been mesmerized by the intricate filaments and details in the SHO data I've seen. For this version I wanted to accentuate those details while keeping the rich star field and more subtle details around the edges. There's a bit of noise out there but I wanted to err on the side of the details. May go back later and try a version with heavier NR in those areas with some more strategic masking.

Data captured from 9/6 - 10/3
