Description

With the cloudy weather in Wisconsin, I decided to reprocess some of my old data with new processing techniques. The main difference between this and the original image is the use of noise reduction in the linear and non linear phase - here I used TGVDenoise and MMT in the linear phase and ACDNR in the non linear phase. This would be better with twice the integration time, but that’s a luxury I don’t have.
