This image was processed entirely in a beta
release Images Plus 5.
Calibration, stacking, initial ArcSin stretch was followed by several
iterations of SMI processing. Masked noise reduction, was
used to control the noise between applications of the SMI process.
Contrast layers were used to increase the contrast of the IFN and a
mask was used to limit the effect on the galaxy. Star reduction was
applied with a mask to limit the effect to just the stars in
the image. One last contrast tweak using curves with a soft light
combine was used before the image was binned and cropped.
