...yes, Saturn is creamy-yellow & Jove much paler in ep's Ferret - I think we have to appreciate that a stacked & processed image captured by a cmos or ccd sensor is a different kettle of fish to that through an ep: forgetting about anything else it is first & foremost an "enhanced" image compared to the ep view so one line of thought would be that it is quite rational to see a somewhat different appearance...one can only wonder at what sort of impression folks would get looking out a porthole as we begin to approach these planets!
I personally have a leaning towards those types of images that reflect what we see in our own cloudscapes here on Earth...& often say to Pat as we're driving along "that looks like those patterns you see on Jove's blah-blah..." or somesuch.
I very rarely achieve it - & they're certainly not our most detailed images - but this variety of image is a reasonable example of what I hope for as a sort of Jovian view as we start to see it from further out as our space-ship approaches. (which does of course have the specific atmospheric conditions at capture as well as the processing as part of it's "appearance")
Obviously here we've just broken out the vino in celebration & are having trouble looking at it squarely - & it might be why it's a tad blurry also..!
Anything I say is just commentary with my weird sense of humour, as I'm sure you appreciate Ferret...it can be very hard to process moons & shadows on the disk in a balanced way, just as it can be to get Saturn & the rings correct in the self-same processing...& why something like P/shop can be valuable using "mask layers" where you can make an image for the disk & another for the rings or moon & shadow & sit them on top of each other.....you essentially rub out the parts where you want the better parts of one processing to show through onto the other - I'm pretty sure GIMP has that function also.
I posted the layer mask approach in a set of images etc here on CN a year or 2 back now...& I think it was earlier this year I did one here on Jovian moon selection & enhancement...it is essentially increasing the clarity of the moons when they are on Jove's disk by selecting them & applying a slight increase in sharpness & contrast but not letting this process displaying any adverse effect on the disk afterwards - very easy tbh, but I must get all those tutes I only posted on CN etc & put them on my website...but it's a real p.i.t.a. finding them sometimes.
You're doing fine Ferret!
