Hi guys this is an other shot in very good seeing conditions, but very poor transparency due to  high clouds . In a rare moment of semi-clear sky i obtained an RGB series of 3 minutes each channel, derotated with WJ

It's an honor to correspond with an astronaut..oh wait that was taken here on earth! Did I miss what kind of telescope you used? That's up there with the best amateur astrophotography I have ever seen!

Beautiful! One day we might be allowed to leave from our homes far enough for me to actually get to use my 0.5m dob too. Nice to see what that sort of aperture is capable of!

Wonderfully detailed. Combining capture and processing skills with great equipment and seeing. The perfect match!   

 

Excellently processed, not over-blown.

Excellent capture and processing! I am intrigued by the idea of using R and G for Luminance. Would you mind tell us more, and the pros and cons of capturing with a L filter?

Clear skies,
Gu

It was only an attempt, the classic RGB is on the same level. Only some slight differences ...

Thanks! The LRGB looks slightly better to me. Maybe I will try it as well.

amazing shot! Compared to Hubble stuff out there, I would put yours comparable. In fact, you picked up some of the structure and blue hues of the Juno polar orbit pics of the north and south weather.
