spruce knob and mars
on the left, my very first (totally unprocessed) image of mars. on the right about 5 mins with paint shop pro (which i just downloaded).
it took me about two hours of not knowing what i was doing, and experimenting with different settings in the cold, damp, and very dark skies of spruce knob in west virginia to get this shot.
imaging is a lot more involved than visual observing. my hat goes off to all those amatuers that capture truly spectacular images.
