This is a first attempt at video processing. The video signal from an STV was recorded on a Sony D8 digital camcorder. Video was transferred digitally into a PC, re-encoded into Indeo video 5.10 using Pinnacle Studio 8 and then processed with K3CCD for frame selection, alignment, and stacking. ~100 frames were processed per channel. Postprocessing after combining into a color image consisted of unsharp masking and color balancing in Photoshop.
