Funny story behind this one; Weather forecast was the best AP
conditions I had ever seen. Alas, the _worst_ seeing imaginable
was the reality.. Haze and high altitude wind. The light pollution
from the nearby town made conditions somewhat like shooting
in the middle of a large urban centre. All in all, a very frustrating
time shooting this one. Lights were basically bright orange but
I decided I wasn't going to let ~3 hours of shooting go to waste.

Hi Conor, nice image. Looks like you collected some good data. I did a little reprocess on it and wondered if you would like to see what I came up with.

Conor, I think you have some good data in there. Post it on the Reprocess My Image and see what the community can do! (Post it as a .png). I found this tough to process, I too live in an urban setting with plenty of LP. I think there is more in your data that is hiding.
