Saturn: second image from first batch

Turns out I did take some shots with the IR cut filter. Just not at f22.

This shot was at f11. Color seems better than the previous effort, evidently because of the IR filter. I've fiddled with it a bit and don't know how to get any more out of it. Any suggestions?

Sometimes BIGGER is not necessarily BETTER...

Very fine detail, and good colors achieved on this one... well done! wink

Very nice shots. It is easier to get the right colors with the IR-cut.

Keep on posting.

PS the second image is noticeably better: I just moved from PSP (version 8.0) to Photoshop. I'm afraid I'll have to upgrade and install PSP once more.
