Free possible pod base (Melb)

I saw this and thought it may make a possible bottom half of a pod. You will need to build up the walls and a dome of course.
No affiliation with seller. (It's free anyway :))...

47 Tuc (one more try at processing)

Played with the same data from Sunday and re-processed 47 Tuc.
Somehow I think I may have over processed it, looks too "cold". :question:
