Very nice! How did you convert it? What was the source version? I used the 2019 NASA version, but it is very hard to convert.

Just asking, but how did you manage to find/make a 16k texture for Neptune? I want to have one in my Celestia install!

And what about Saturn and its rings?

I used Voyager 2 data to create and enhance new layers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neptune#/media/File:Neptune_clouds.jpg
