Hi Wes,

phew, superb grin I wish I would have some gems half as good in my unprocessed stuff wink
I can't say wich image I like better. Since I'm a big fan of the Copernicus area I guess it'll be the Stadius image.

Best wishes,
Oliver

An outstanding result Chris, excellent grin
Do you use an LRGB processing or is this pure RGB ?

Best wishes,
Oliver

Hi Alan,

Hope you have such fine conditions again soon to create another backcatalog of unprocessed material wink

Saturn 2007/3/13 RGRGB

Posted By Oliver Pettenpaul

Hi Richard,

oh, I almost missed this one. Beautifull processing, very close to Saturn's visual appearance. RG-RGB is the way to go (if seeing has been good enough for the green stream... wink ).

Best wishes,
Oliver
