False(ish) Color Image of Saturn

Saturn July 16 2017

Saturn composed of frames taken in the red, green and violet filters. Taken by the Cassini Spacecraft on July 16, 2017. Processed by me.

Because I couldn’t wait to process another image of Saturn (because HELLO, SATURN, and September 15th is far too near), I decided to try out a false(ish) color process. I say false because I used an image taken in the violet (which is a slightly lower wavelength of light than blue; see paper┬áby C. C. Proco for more details) in place of where I’d put a frame taken in the blue filter, which required quite a bit more work to get to this color. And hey, not too bad! Gotta process all we can, while we can.

More to come!
