Superb.


I do not look at the sky with the eyes of an astronomer, but of a person looking for the beauty of nature.

Nice captures! My only advice would be to use a smaller radius (kernel size) to sharpen at with 540nm.

Thanks Mark and well spotted.
Your diagnosis seems spot on. (pardon the pun)
We had just used a saved wavelet scheme and didn't check.
So we had another go this morning and the settings we had used were far from ideal.
This is the re-worked effort on AR3190.

A great set of images, Clare and Peter. I was hoping to get out and take a look myself this morning, but the weather forecast proved unreliable and we got clouds instead of the ‘promised’ wall to wall sunshine. :roll: :roll:

It's always disappointing to be promised something that is not delivered. Hope you see the sun soon!

Another great set of image Clare & Peter.

Also, the reprocessed image improved significantly!

Best regards,
