it looks like I need to add the IR742 filter to my ever growing astro wishlist...
I think a Baader 685 IR filter would be better for the job. I have one on order and it should be here tomorrow! I think a 742IR filter is better for objects with a higher surface brightness. I just got lucky with having a very steady and transparent sky at the time.

Great capture! Did you see Marc Delcroix's Neptune images over on ALPO-Japan? All were obtained using a 1-meter telescope and look almost like yours. Damian's September 25, 2010 Neptune image listed there is also worth checking out. You're definitely in the major leagues with those guys. Capturing details in Neptune's clouds with 14" telescopes, who would have thought that possible twenty years ago? I find it remarkable today, congratulations!
