Focusing on Hartley 2
Deep Impact's High-Resolution Imager (HRI) has suffered from a blurring problem since launch, but the team has developed methods to "deconvolve" the blurred images to reveal more detail. This blink animation compares HRI views of the nucleus of comet Hartley 2 before and after deconvolution.
