Here's something kind of simple... the Saturn rotation approach movie in a version that's totally raw and another that's processed and stabilized. It plays at a rate of 48 minutes per second, or about ten frames per second - I accounted for a 4.8 minute break by doubling the frame prior to the break. I roughly stabilized the whole sequence manually, frame by frame. I could've found a way to do it automatically but it wouldn't have been as satisfying. Manually stabilizing Voyager image sequences is a really relaxing, stress relieving activity for me.

It's kind of hard to see due to the erased reseaus and the fact that Saturn is hazy, but a few storms can be seen rotating around the planet. The famous spokes and a ton of moons are clearly visible. Keep an eye out for the occultations and transits!

This is really cool - it's great to see all the orbiting moons.

I haven't tried any automation on the Saturn images yet so don't know how well it will handle the rings - it might not work very well...

Thanks! I'm looking at a few more possible movies to do, including some longitudinal sequences where the faint storms are a little easier to pick out.
