Description

Have done quite a lot of playing around with this in APP, Startools and PS. Initially as HSO and then did a deepish cull down to best 12 horus or so of H and O as a HOO version and then have played around with various blends in PS.

This has been binned 2x2 in Startools and the cropped hence resolution down a bit. 

I never tire of the Helix. It looks so much like an eye it's scarry. WOuld liektop try it at a longer FL in future.
