I had to struggle extremely with this picture. Recorded with the Chilescope, there were extreme gradients in luminance and red channel - nobody knows what went wrong. Incident the red channel which brightened up to 3/4 of the picture.

For 3 1/2 months now I have been working on the picture to save what can be saved. Fortunately, I have a lot of patience. And even if you take a closer look and see what is wrong, I still find it very successful!

2 hours and 10 minutes of luminance.
30 minutes per color channel

Hope you like it.
