Exploitcorporations, I can't really say my processing is all that more accurate than JPLs as there are a few things to consider here: The colors in my latest Saturn images in the gallery are based on my experiments with VIMS data and choosing channel mixes to resemble that as closely as possible. I've still to figure out the best mix, but I'm working toward it. If anything, the blue cranium might be a bit too
subtle in some of my views. The other thing that might affect your perception is I have a lot of high phase Saturn composites there and I think the blue tones aren't in reality as pronounced in those views. I also tried to keep the saturation lower to match the softness of the VIMS views, especially when a proper 2.2 gamma is applied.
That said, I do believe CICLOPS went overboard with saturation on a few color composites, making other Saturn shots weirdly yellow and dull compared to those. For reference, here are two of my ISS views that closely resemble results using VIMS: Ring Shadows 1
and Saturn's North
. Compare the second one with the Blue Cranium
Just for a quick reference, here are some of VIMS results
with a slightly lower gamma and compare the intensity of the colors there. Also, a VIMS mosaic
of the blue cranium from a low phase angle.
