No this is not faked! I put it together from a set of departure images. only about 10% or so involved use of a duplicate
image to fill a gap. It took a lot of heavy processing to suppress Neptune glare, which caused some of the spots to go oversaturated and some of the finer ring detail to wash out but its still a pretty pic. I dont think Triton was in the vicinity at the time, which would have been a real kicker.

I made this in 1993 and its been lurking in my digital files ever since. its a wonder it didnt "disappear" with all the OS and platform changes since then.
