DescriptionThis image of the full moon has been computer-enhanced to show the mineral colouration. Processing details: 40 of the best original frames (from 52 taken) were stacked in Registax 4 to produce a 'luminance' master. In Photoshop 7, each original image was also colour-balanced and saturation levels increased in stages. These processed images were then stacked to produce a 'colour' master. Both masters were then combined in Photoshop to produce the final image.

DescriptionIn December of 2007, Saturn's rings went though their smallest tilt since 1997 and the smallest until late 2008. Due to the small tilt, two of Saturn's moons also form an unusually pretty pairing (Rhea on top and Dione on the bottom, brightness enhanced), with Rhea almost grazing the globe of Saturn.
