I've finally reprocessed my Mercury texture. This time based on a slightly different map. The color filters used streched far into infrared, so I had to balance out the channels to create a natural color ciew, which sadly toned down the color range. But I think it is the most realistic representation of Mercury possible.
I adjusted the colors according to this site: www.donaldedavis.com/20… and reduced shading at the polar areas with my normal map.

Sourece: astrogeology.usgs.gov/…
gaps filled with: astrogeology.usgs.gov/…

I also made a 64k virtual texture of the b&w version. I would like to process it the same way as this texture and color it in, but this is not possible with my computer.
