I uploaded three files to the LoadingDock/RLE/Amb_F130sup ... the one I like best is Amb_F130sup_039v_039v_b01-b14_RF_cal_med3+box51_bad_blue_14bands_ICA_R3G6B8.tif

TRH 4/9/2017

Agreed... that image is beautiful and makes most of the text readable.
Great suppression with just enough of the overtext to get oriented...
I don’t see any advantage to the others.

I think the best one overall is Amb_F130sup_057r_b15-b38_FL_cal_med3+box31_bad_W365BGOR_W450BGOR_FL_YELLOW_8bands_ICA_R5G6B8.tif.
I would give some points to Amb_F130sup_057r_b15-b38_FL_cal_med3+box31_bad_W365BGOR+W450BGOR_FL_blue_8bands_ICA_R4G5B6.tif for being strikingly clear in some areas, but other areas are not clear at all, and the areas in which it is clear are also clear enough in R5G6B8.

Both images are big improvements over accurate color. I don’t have enough scholarly background on these palimpsests to know what has or has not been read before. I will focus on putting the images into an easy interface for scholars. Perhaps Stefano or someone he knows will be in the best position to publish scholarship.

I think it is working well to wander through the grove of the various palimpsests we captured and pick some low-hanging fruit. We can take the lessons learned back to the harder pages later. Shall we continue with the other pages in Ambrosiana_F130sup?

My favorite is Amb_F130sup_091r_b01-b14_RF_cal_blue_textblock_14bands_ICA_R-2G3B-5_imgau.tif. However, note that the filename is incorrect. This is an image of Ambrosiana_F130sup_064v. I added it to the IIIF repository as
