Description

M81 a LRHaGB-color picture from Denmark, Sjaelland area.

A kind of a crowd-imaging picture with few pictures/stacks integrated into one cropped color picture.

It's the second version of a M81 crowd picture, where I have used Morten la Cours FOV as a reference for integration/re-scale of the other pictures FOV.

Colors and luminance background in this picture are taken from the first M81 crowd version here:

Notes:
Except the Red/Ha blend feature, where I used Mortens Ha info./exposures.
Niels Haagh's rgb stacks used as a color layer/info. (with a given opacity) and as an artificial lum stack.
