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