images

David's image of the UK - recommended in response to a request for example
images - was captured and processed in July. London, Birmingham and the
Manchester conurabation were visible in this image. Is this a normal image,
routinely achievable in summer illumination, or was it in any sense a one-off?
I ask this because I have a similar HPRT image from around the same time and
although the latter is better (Chester is visible), the MSG-1 image bears
comparison with it.
It will be great if we can normally expect to acquire images like this in the
summer - when the sky is clear that is!

Robert,

Do you want the good news or the good news?

- no, it is not a one-off, although the weather does need to be
clear!

- no, you shouldn't get as good as this next summer, you should get
BETTER! Why? Well, that image was made back in the bad old days
when the HRV data was transmitted with lossy JPEG compression. Now,
the data is not sent with lossless wavelet compression, so all of
those nasty JPEG artefacts will be gone!

You can look forward to even better images from MSG-1 next summer
than you had last summer!

Cheers,
David

Good news indeed
