Designed for Visible images. This shows more details at cloud top level in deep convection during the mid-day hours. The images are brighter, so that this is particularly useful during the winter season, or anytime near sunrise and sunset.

Alternative: Substitute a value of 235 instead of 255 so that clouds don’t appear quite as bright, this may appear better or worse depending on monitor settings.
