    M64 Black Eye Galaxy
    I decide to try a more classic version, with less saturated colors and a black eye, simply darker !

    Same subs and integration than the previous version, but a softer process for the colors and stronger for the contrast of the eye:-)

    3 nights were necessary to get the subs: 31 of march and 07/08, 05 of april
    Red 30 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
    Blue 30 subs@180s -20°C gain zero
    Green 40 subs@180s -20°C gain zero

    Tell me if you prefer this version ?
    Light 60subs@180s -20°C, gain zero
