And I'm using them including using Mike Malaska's great work which gets me from visual to radar data. But that's actually precisely my problem. My script calls for me to approach Titan, go down through the atmosphere to the Huygens landing site - a very key part of my film. Unfortunately, today, it's not possible unless I do CGI which my film entirely based on only using real images. It's the only planet or moon in the film I don't have a suitable image of, ironically.
Don't know if this will help but ....
There's a web site that you should visit for images: http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/index.html
Click on planet Saturn then select Titan.
Type in the following PIA numbers in the search box:
PIA10008 this is a 185 meg of the north polar lakes
PIA08391 this is a must shot of orange and blue titan atmosphere with Saturn ring in background
PIA08117 this is the descent movie with bells and whistles that you might make into your journey throught the atmosphere to the Huygens landing site. While not very hi res there is no denying of the power of the gradual appearance of the alien landscape of Titan and rapid sequence to the surface with a view from the surface.
PIA08112 Hi res fisheye color views of the Huygens landing site at different heights
PIA06241 a movie of alien clouds moving over the visible south pole of Titan
PIA02145 and 02146 infrared views of Titans topography including a mountain range and a blue cloud band
I can imagine an approach showing Saturn and the orange Titan in full light and then a shot of Titan with sun behind it in eclipse; then a zoom in on PIA08391 to the descent movie to the surface. Go to the north polar hood shot PIA062366 then the infrared view PIA09171 of the giant north polar cloud then wow them with the higher res view of the north polar lakes PIA10008 that have formed under that giant cloud.
