My closer Galileo mosaic is also very high resolution, but it is extremely high phase.

The color isn't perfect, and indeed one or two frames suffer minor alignment issues, but otherwise this movie of Saturn's spokes is best viewed in 1080p:

Wow.
This is probably the best Voyager Saturn movie I have ever seen.

Thanks guys! smile.gif I did this last year, and given I was preoccupied with another project, I gave myself a week to complete this movie, from start to finish. This explains some of the minor flaws I listed above, and there is scope for a revised version, perhaps using reprojected frames to fill the central gap.

This is how the very same sequence was presented back in the day:

agree! it is beautiful. would it look even better if more of the center were cropped out so the frame edges didn't dance around so much?

Ian, your work impressively demonstrates how much information was in the Voyager data--and how your skills and modern tools have the ability to unlock that old dataset. Cassini has so improved our image coverage and scientific knowledge of Saturn's moons that watching 1981 clips shows both the joy of first discoveries, but also how far we have come in 34 years.

Stunning work Ian, thanks for sharing with us!

Noticeable difference to me between Voyager and Cassini is the (relative) paucity of spokes in the rings. They are very prominent in the Voyager data.

With my grateful thanks to Tanya and Emily of The Planetary Society, my new guest blog entry gives the low-down on how I assembled this sequence last year, over the course of just one week:
