Left: Titan in natural color from Cassini ISS wideband red, green, blue, and UV filter images in their respective channels, with blue and UV sharing the blue channel.
Right side: Narrowband data allow us to peek through Titan's haze. In this view, the red channel is infrared, and green and blue are two methane bands (MT1 and MT2, respectively). The infrared data has been applied as luminosity to further enhance the visibility of Titan's surface features.
