Description

Another cloudy and snowy day, April 15, 2020.

This HLA processed image is an example of a floccculant galaxy. The HLA data is made up of 4 images mosaic with very bad stitches. The mosaic stitches or borders were healed using a line mask and a 200 pixels radius area detail search. I decided not to sharpen the image, to avoid amplifying the imperfection of the mosaic borders.

Can you see where the 4 stitches are? I do, and perfection is always an impossible goal.
