Oh, wow look! A Polerizing Nebula
Just installed the newest Nvidia drivers last night, Previously, I had the current drivers before this update. I must admit, things noticeably improved from what I thought was pretty good already. I kept all my settings the same since before installing the update. The major improvements were moving around quicker, moving the camera view was alot smoother, rotating around objects was more fluid, landscapes generated alot faster (@LOD 1), & movies I made were easier to do. I checked out many places and objects with no issues displaying any of them. Sometimes Galaxies in the distance would need a half second to generate but I did notice when making a movie at the time, if I ever saw them disappear from the screen for a second, they were always captured in the video with no moments of "invisibility". I love nebulae so I certainly viewed a handful of them with the new drivers installed.
The only weird thing I ran across was this "polarized light" Nebula (Barnard 68, shown in picture above) with stars behind it clearly visible through the gas. Clusters were only slightly visible through the black clouds and other near by nebula were not seen, as they should be, just as other nebulae block the view. As you might notice all the gas from the Milky Way was blocked from view, just not the stars. I've run across other dark or black nebulae but never as transparent. Is this normal for other people on their systems? Just hoping my driver update isn't going to remain a problem. Any quick and easy fixes? If not, no big deal, I can live with the better speed, clearer pics and faster loading speeds. THX!
BTW I tried to visit RCW 147 & RCW 160 but when I clicked on the name in the browser and clicked go to, it said object not found or doesn't exist, something like that. That's a first for me. Oh and one other thing, 54 Piscium did not appear as a binary pair of Brown Dwarfs as I thought they were know to be. Thanks again.
