Description: I am not really happy with the original version. I don't feel like my DSLR is doing this object any favors. This new version has been drizzled properly in PI to fix oversampling and to me looks better in mono. I converted it to mono with Luminar AI as I just didn't care for the color version as it's lacking Ha.
