This is a full-frame image on 35mm slide film. It is a stack of three exposures totalling 40 minutes. All were taken through a Hutech IDAS LPS-P1 filter, which made it a bit of a challenge to get any of the original blue back in the image. It's still far too red, even given the film I used. Stacking isn't supposed to work as well for scanned film images as it does for images that are taken with digital sensors (film is by no means a linear-responding recording medium). But it is still quite effective at controlling noise, in this case film grain.
