Triton's crescent in color (high-pass filtered)
Filed under pretty pictures, amateur image processing, Voyager 1 and 2, Triton, Neptune's moons, global views
High-pass filtering of a digital image emphasizes small-scale details over large-scale variations in color (such as those caused by the way that solar illumination changes from Triton's bright limb to its dark terminator).
