Nokia 3310/3330/3390 LCDs (with PCD8544 Controller)

I recently bought two Nokia LCDs from eBay seller talktalkmobiles, and each came with a free Torx-8 screwdriver.
The screens come from Nokia 3310, 3330 and 3390, and haveĀ built-in Philips PCD8544 controllers.

It has 8 pins on the back of the LCD.

Orion Nebula and Cloud Complex

Orion Nebula and Cloud Complex

Clusters of stars around the Orion Nebula, the nebula itself is in the center in white. This photo also shows some of the Orion Molecular Cloud Complex

Wikipedia says:

The nebula is also very bright in the infrared wavelengths due to the heat-intensive processes involved in the stellar formation.

The infrared wavelengths are shown here as red, hence the red background to the image. The image is mainly red because there was no blue data available.
