Description

Steve Mazlin and Jack Harvey reprocessed old data originally acquired by J. Thibert back in 2006. After getting the group's consensus, the image so obtained was then remixed with Thibert's original to further improve certain issues. Finally, Thibert himself briefly emerged from self-imposed retirement to throw in his 2 cents! The end result speaks for itself.
