Stunning picture David! Job well done!

Wonderful, thank you very much.
DavidK (Feb 13, 2008 at 1:59 PM):
Thanks y'all. :)

...waking from my rest, a view out the forward portal worthy of a DavidK image. Am I asleep and still dreaming of such beauty? No, I am awake and ready to continue my journey.

It's still COSMIC ! Even though it's a simuation...I'm sure it would look pretty much as you've depicted it. Well done DavidK :) :) :) :)
DavidK (Nov 1, 2007 at 2:09 AM):

Thank you for the compliment! I'm glad that you liked it. :)

This is really an awesome image and probably not too far from what it would actually look like (apart from Saturn being at too big a phase ;). Very well done, David!

P.S. I think Carolyn was responding to wrigleymj's comment in that he fails to see the beauty of this. Oh well, his loss...
DavidK (Oct 29, 2007 at 1:25 PM):
Angry? Did I say anything wrong? I don't understand...
carolyn (CICLOPS) (Oct 29, 2007 at 10:13 AM):
Wrigleymj: Why would anyone be angry?!
Merry (Oct 29, 2007 at 10:09 AM):
I am not amused... or impressed. In fact, I am really angry with you.
DavidK (Oct 28, 2007 at 8:30 AM):
Thanks y'all for the nice comments. :) It is 100 % computer generated (Terragen 2, Photoshop CS3 and Celestia).

It looks like an artist impression...please tell me it's a real image. COSMIC !
Pipipot (Oct 26, 2007 at 11:16 AM):
I've not seen something like this. There are artist conceptions just like this, but I never thought their artistic minds are capable of drawing just like what the Casini is seeing out there. It is awesome. Thank you for all those behind the scenes who have made this view possible.
Merry (Oct 26, 2007 at 10:23 AM):
It is so beautiful that it doesn't look real. What a capture! Way to go.
