The Devil’s contrails

Elena hates it when they say that in movies and TV shows. There is a finite amount of information in bitmap images. You can’t just keep “enhancing it.” In this case the image is both zoomed (4x) and cropped and enlarged (10x), even though the manufacturer calls the second part a “zoom” function. I want a better lens. Ever since Lydia planted the thought, I am craving an SLR. Contrails look fantastic in winter, especially in this pre-dawn Martian light.
