Description

Motto:  Never give up.  I took this data in December of 2007 and had tried to process it a couple times.  I was never happy with it since I couldn't get any detail (not the small amount of Lum data in it).  While I was AIC, I listened to some of the stuff Tony Hallas was saying and had this data on my laptop.  So, I tried some of his techniques.  Image came out reasonable well I think.  Not perfect and I may try to get some more and better data but a reasonable version of M82 (and some new processing techniques)!
