Image Information

 


Welcome to Observing With NASA!

We’ll take you through the steps of processing your very own MicroObservatory image using our JS9-4L image processor.

Next

ADJUST THE SCALE

Use these scales to highlight different regions of relative brightness in your MicroObservatory image.

Switch between the scales to see how regions that appear black suddenly reveal much greater detail.

Next

ADJUST THE CONTROLS

Use these sliders to fine-tune the contrast.

Pixel values below the Low Brightness Limit will be absolute black, values above the High Brightness Limit will be absolute white.

Next

ADJUST THE CONTROLS

The Contrast and Bias sliders are advanced tools that allow you to stretch, squish and shift the pixel value range in which your colors are displayed.

Next

ADJUST THE COLOR

Choose from this list of colormaps
to either add beauty to your image,
or highlight the relative brightness
of different regions in your image.

Next




SAVE YOUR IMAGE

When you’re done, don’t forget to save your image to your own device! And make sure to choose either PNG or JPEG format.

(FITS format doesn’t save all the processing that you’ve done.)
