Description

I took this with my Redcat a couple weeks ago, but couldn't get things straight. I had a problem with my darks. I went ahead and did a quick stack of it again this evening, but reused 70 degree darks rather than the ones I took at 30 degrees and it fixed things (that is in F, not C). Ohh well, it seems to have worked.
