I decided to spend one night for color imaging. The goal was to get correct
color of the planet.
I have performed the following to obtain true color: use of dispersion
corrector, background subtraction and setting the color balance with
artificial white field.

Color of the planet is very close to the color of Neptune (see my picture
from 2015/09/25) .
Belts are visible in red channel
