Interesting dust pattern here


Where has the contrast and brightness control gone from the browser? I used to use it to visualise these faint patterns. This is what it looks like enhanced in Photoshop…

Hi,
You can find the brightness-contrast sliders (and a few additional layers) at the original version,

Yes, that’s better! Why the different versions?

viewer.legacysurvey.org is supposed to be a stripped-down version for the broader public; we referred to it in our recent press releases. Previously (and probably soon again) we host it on AWS to be able to handle surge load if it hits Reddit or some other site like that.

Well these brightness controls allow you to see all sorts of hidden details that can be quite interesting, like this bit…

Yep, it just gets a little cluttered to have all the controls and layers.
