High-resolution mosaic of Jupiter
Filed under Jupiter, Voyager 1 and 2, amateur image processing
A 12-frame mosaic covering Jupiter's iconic Red Spot as seen from Voyager 1. Mosaics like this one were not produced at the time of the flyby because the computing power was not up to the task of warping and blending the component images.
