The colors of the high resolution mosaic were obtained from 14 green and 14 violet filter images of the ISSN, and as I dont wanted any black gaps to make the final image more eye-candy, I composed a single composite image from CH4, orange, green, blue and violet filters obtained via the ISSW. Finaly I stretched the wide angle color image to make it fit the Narrow angle color mosaic. I used GIMP for all the processing. I talk a bit more about it here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/alex-is-solaris/28197414680/
