Caption: Figure 6.

The same snapshot from the left of Figure 5, but showing the various populations of low-luminosity particles hidden in the cluster’s surface brightness profile. On the left, we show the distribution of helium, carbon/oxygen, and oxygen/neon white dwarfs (in red, blue, and teal), as well as the NSs (purple) and BHs (black). On the right, we show smoothed 2D number densities and their uncertainties for these populations, calculated from the same snapshot using the cmctoolkit.
