LRGB color production was used to create this image.

The color data was severely contaminated by the stray (scattered) light of a bright star outside of the field of view.

 (SAO 129371). Great pains were taken to try not to make this obvious. Before Image.

Digital Development (DDP) via Maxim/DL was also used in order to display the very dim and very bright details of

the image simultaneously.
