Technical Notes: Individual exposures were dithered using CCDAutoPilot2 and then sigma combined. The RGB image was created in Registar 1.0. Reduce Noise and Gaussian Blur were applied to the RGB image and to the dim portions of the luminance image. A high-pass filter with a radius of 4 pixels was selectively applied to a copy of the luminance image. The RGB image was duplicted and blended with the original using Soft Light to enhance color saturation.
