Well, if I save it as a png file it gets /fixed/, that's what happens! Thanks
Thomas :D

The attached is what the POV-Ray render looks like now.

What's IC, btw? Did you mean IV aka IrfanView? I use that for many things, but
in this case it didn't help the situation whatsoever. Maybe I'm using it wrong.
Instead I used GIMP and exported the image to a png file with some options

TL;DR: use GIMP to convert NASA's tiff files to a 16-bit png file using the
16bpc GRAY pixel format :)


P.S. I still wonder if POV-Ray is mishandling 16-bit grayscale tiff files...
