Rick, that is very eye pleasing image. Good contrast, great colors and I can definitely can see a flying dragon. Ohh boy, 64 hours, it have to be a pleasure to work with this kind of data.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Sergio.  The automated system is great for collecting lots of data!  I still find it challenging to process, of course.
