Comments: I've not 'pushed' this image to bring out any detail. It's pretty much a median combine with minor tweaking. Histogram stretch done in Adobe Photoshop. I'm still working on getting the right spacing with the WO reducer/flattener. I need to buy some spacers. This one was using a 30mm spacer.
