Also, I believe that despite my reluctance to "super-size" my reprocess right down the thread at larger scale is a better outcome yet again imho...and will now "do" an r-rgb at this large scale!
This is also the image which I have sent to the professional organisations and which has already attracted some interest from them.....
We spent 3 nights on the trot imaging from about 3am till 6am finishing yesterday morning with 300Gb+ of data, massive tiredness and no real sense of satisfaction!
I believe the seeing was quite reasonable - I'd go so far as to say "good" even.....but the transparency was poor with SkippSky predicting 6/10 each night although I'd have to say that rating was probably somewhat optimistic.
At least we got to try out varying the focal length at last and various framerates with different resolutions to keep the filesizes down so that WMP could play the avi's without resorting to VirtualDub.....but for data that seemed promising onscreen I feel as if it just didn't make the grade ultimately and can only blame the transparency - that or me and my trusty sidekick..!
Anyway, here is one of a number of avi sets that all looked pretty similar - kinda strange that Encke and some quite distinct features such as the bright spot high in Northern latitudes directly adjacent to one of the vertices of the NPH-Zone and other details across the disk can be seen - but for some strange reason not cracking the sort of really sharp definition we were hoping/wishing for from the live feed.....as said, I can only speculate that the detail, although resolved was not clear & sharp because of said poor transparency?!?
One other point to note is that which I made elsewhere about how the C-ring should appear - a pale "steel-blue" and NOT any shade of neutral gray.....and it should be appreciated re this point that blue intensity is reduced to 85% in rgb combine as well as the blue histogram being the lowest during capture.....I never do anything in processing to manipulate the C-ring's colour or visibility.
