Technical data:     4"-Pentax SDUF I

                            ST10XME and CFW8 filter set

                            RGB (R=4x300s; G=4x300s; B=4x300s; RGB bin1) and in addition the red channel was used for Luminance to create an RRGB.

                            The channels were combined 1,2:0,95:1,6 per software. Because the star bloating of the SDUF I in blue was so extreme, the minimum filter was used in the blue channel to shrink

                            the diameter of the selected brightest stars. This helped a lot to avoid blue halos around the blue stars.
