comment Gallery of 'actual images' from space?
Beginning to think I should've asked at Photography.SE, how can I better tell if a photograph is altered in any way, considering my obvious lack of knowledge in it and my difficulty in wording this. But I don't think playing with the exposure should discount the 1st pic. It deff doesn't have a blue ring tho... There's a gif of the 1st pic that absolutely brings it to life. I can tell from it, what it must look like. #2 looks like a 90s DOS game. Over exposed is one thing, highlighting aspects with color, of things not in the visible spectrum; that's what I need a baseline of it for.

comment What wavelength to best detect the “9th planet”?
@DavidHammen - What would a simple extrapolation say about a Planet X sized object? And how far away do they claim #9 is?

comment Gallery of 'actual images' from space?
@RobJeffries I'm not all that hip to photography. I'd guess I mean only pictures from Narrow or Wide Angle Lens Cameras (ISS), not IRIS, UVS or PPS. -Voyager's Cameras I want pictures of what it would look like to my eyes if I was there. I will admit that until you mentioned it, it escaped me that Voyager actually had CCD cameras. Maybe the next question is for a gallery of developed film from space.

Indeed. Perhaps I should of asked what probes even had real cameras on them. Mars rover, Voyager 1,2 and...?

Yep, all Hubble pictures don't count. Nice site though.

comment Maximum Amplitude of a Lissajous Orbiting Object in a L4 or L5 Position
I'm guessing you found this, too: astronomy.stackexchange.com/questions/1219/… most of it is over my head so don't know if it helps.

Bonus! Why are you and I the resident SE experts on Lagrangian points... I never even finished collage.

No clue, I thought stuff just sat out there. Ask some math guys to plug in what is the circumference of the orbit of a L5 10% the mass of Earth into some nifty equation. Then you could plot the previous course giving you the maximum deviation before destabilization. Yes, I am making this all up.
