...in my opinion your last 3 or so image sets have been much, much better - you seem to have thrown away that garish, over-processed approach from whoever ;) & the last few have come out far, far better - congrats! waytogo.gif waytogo.gif waytogo.gif :)

About 50 something degrees at zenith.

I am using a lighter hand with the wavelets. What helps is the even in criticism, everyone tried to help improve.


I realize that getting hung up on a process can hurt more than help. Trying something new can change how you process data. I realize I have a bunch of lunar stuff to upload.

I am saving for a c14. Then it will be time to party

Nice image.  And I agree that your outcomes are improving.  Everyone has opinions of course, although it's telling that with more experience, we tend to start favoring a much lighter hand with processing.  This is probably the best I've seen from you on Saturn, especially with regard to the rings.  Well done.
