Removal of the 50Hz pickup

In cases where the background level is low, it may be possible to see the 50Hz pickup. In most cases, the pickup will average out when the images are registered and stacked. If you want to remove the pickup, then it is at this point of the reduction sequence it should be done. A description of how the pickup could be removed is provided in [*].
