I captured this so it also included the surface details but with the variable seeing and clouds it made including the surface pointless as it would get totally blown out any time the clouds interfered.
The stretching was done using ImPPG. I've watched a tutorial or 2 on YT but what's the best way when trying to capture both surface and proms for animations w/o having to record a ton of actions for PS? For this one all I did in PS is the final crop and colorization.
Sometimes you just have to accept that unless conditions are perfect, where you have a really bright prom, great seeing and some nice action on the surface, you just have to work with something in between what you can do with a single image that you can manipulate a lot, and that which you can do the exact same to each and every frame with something like ImPPG. Or you are going to spend a HUGE amount of time with a 60 - 120 frame animation. Any time you have any type of cloud moving in front of your image you are going to get problems with brightness, sharpness, etc. I have had those animations where everything clicked and it was really easy to get wonderful details on both the surface and proms with no flickering, changes in sharpness, etc. This is always when seeing is absolutely amazing and there is no interference with high clouds.
Typically, unless there is something really interesting on the surface near a prom I want to do an animation of, I simply expose for the prom and then black out the disk as you did here to emphasize the prom.
This is the most dramatic one out of hundreds that I have done where everything was absolutely perfect:
