These are wonderful examples of polarization, how do you produce these?

@butdidyoudie I have equipped my camera with a stepper motor which rotates the polarizer. I acutally take 16 images with different polarization angles and the postprocess these 16 images to retrieve the polarization state at each pixel.

Awesome, so cool. So you have software that stacks them and then colorizes the difference between them?

I have written python scripts that process these images, retrieve polarimetric properties and then exports images of the different components (Polarized / unpolarized comonent, or the angle of polarization in false color)
