Digital Specifications

The images in this collection were originally captured at approximately 800 pixels per inch with a Hasselblad H2 camera with a CF39MS digital back and HC Macro 4/120mm lens. The image capture process included processing the RAW images with Hasselblad Phocus software for proper exposure, white balance and exporting to the TIFF file format. The archival version of the images were later processed in Adobe Photoshop to include the proper ICC color profile, created during color calibration of the camera, and conversion to the TIFF files used to upload the images into the LUNA image database. The upload process includes conversion of these files to JPEG and JPEG2000 iterations used for display of the images.
