What is real in Uranus?

Recommended Posts

Following other posts, I am reprinting the image of Uranus that I made artificially colored, along with another that I tried to make as natural as possible (bottom left).
In this IR 610 nanometer image I just piled on AS! 2 and gave the wavelets a slight tug with a 200% resize.
Of course the original image was red and I converted it to black and white to make it more aesthetically pleasing.
In this less processed image we can actually perceive what Uranus looks like, none of those artificial colors that are impossible to exist and with nuances of things that do not know what is real or artifact.
Most experts agree that nowadays Uranus presents itself with almost no noteworthy activity, and that the only thing right is the lighter polar region relative to the rest of the planet, which can easily be seen in the black and white image. White.
 We then deduced that it would be virtually impossible to take anything large as it appears in the color image and that as such, most of those "nuances" are really just noise caused by over processing.

Top quality image as always. You can see the shading in the image. Despite having decent kit I can't see this visually.

Excellent images as always Avani, been thinking about your images for the last couple of weeks, since you posted them. 

The Polar region is definitely visible, I have managed to capture that once myself. As for the other "markings" I guess time will tell. Have thought about trying to capture the rings?

Excelentes imagens, como sempre, a Avani, pensando nas suas imagens nas últimas semanas, desde que você as publicou. 

A região polar é definitivamente visível, eu consegui capturar isso uma vez. Quanto às outras "marcações", acho que o tempo dirá. Já pensou em tentar capturar os anéis?

Acho impossível devido a baixa altitude de Urano aqui pra mim, já é dificil em excelentes condições amigo Pete!

I find it impossible due to the low altitude of Uranus here for me, it is already difficult in excellent condition friend Pete!

I didn't realise it was so low for you, Jupiter and Saturn have been the same for us in the UK.

Excellent insights, Avani, and great image. Uranus is high for us in the United States. Come on over to the U.S. and bring all your gear, lol! I'll bring the food!

Bravo,

Avani ;)
