Piercing Titan's veil
Amateur image processor Judy Schmidt created this view of Titan using Cassini wideband RGB filter images combined with a sharpened infrared luminosity overlay to bring out the surface details that are normally completely enshrouded by Titan's atmosphere. The data used were acquired by Cassini on 19 February 2013.

Filters used to create the image:

Luminosity overlay: CB3 938N
Red: RED 650W
Green: GRN 568W
Blue: BL1 451W
