Cassini view of Titan on March 6, 2014 Cassini ISS view of Titan during the T-99 flyby on March 6, 2014. This 9-frame mosaic focuses on lakes around Titan's North Pole, and was intended to help map a large portion of the northern hemisphere that was mapped at much lower resolution previously. The frames was acquired at a range of 314,000 km.

This image uses 9 frames taken during the spacecraft's approach. Each subframe uses three median-stacked CB3 filter images, with atmospheric signal removed by subtracting the difference between the CB3 stack and an MT1 filter image.
