Description
Taking a Stack of 14, 15 second exposures through a clear filter. The image was smoothed with a 131x131 pixel mask and then subtracked the smoothed result from the original image. The goal was to detect sublte features hidden by the broad and bright illumination. It apears that a Bow shock and tail were detected.
