X and Y profiles of the artifact. The X profile is a straight column
sum, and the Y profile is a row sum of the 8 central columns. For the
latter a background has been subtracted so that a log scale could be
used. The background came from the average of the two 8-column vertical
stripes +-10 X pixels away from the artifact. The image used was a
short exposure so as to minimize the dark signal.
