Voyager 1 longitudinal scan 1 of Io
The images in this mosaic were all affected to some degree by motion smearing due to movement of the spacecraft's scan platform during imaging. This smearing has been corrected using the Parallel Interval Deconvolution plugin for imageJ. Input point spread functions were initially guessed at by finding small light features in the smeared images. These were then iteratively modified to determine the best fit for desmearing. Much of the fine detail has been permanently lost in heavily smeared images, but for a world so lacking in high-resolution imagery as Io, it still provides an improvement over existing data.
