Crescent Neptune and Triton from Voyager 2

I created three separate RGB images from orange, green, and blue filtered images that were aligned on Neptune's limb, the clouds on Neptune, and Triton. I then stacked the three RGB images and used Layer Masks in Photoshop to reveal the clouds and Triton superimposed on the image of Neptune.
