Titania, night-side enhanced Extensive processing of the Voyager images of Titania has revealed some features dimly visible on the moon's night side, lit by Uranus-shine.

This "super-res" view is at about 166% of the original scale of the images; it was made by stacking the original images to improve resolution, and overlaying color information on the stacked image. The original observation included two photos taken through the clear filter, and one each through violet and green filters. Titania is Uranus' largest moon.
