Who's Marianne? Regardless, maybe I didn't know about her 2 months ago. : )

Marianne Oelund, aka Moon Maid, aka Ms. Nikon, was responsible for the research that identified Nikon's Hot-Pixel Suppression routine that had the unfortunate side effect of eradicating faint stars from images. Thom Hogan took this information to Japan and it was instrumental in Nikon improving the algorithm (although not entirely eliminating the effect, IIRC), making Nikon's DSLRs more respectable for astrophotography.
