Saturn storm watching, Titan cloud tracking at apoapse, CIRS prime during the Feb 19 Titan flyby.

For me the highlight will be February 21 high-phase Enceladus imaging.

Meanwhile, in the recent raw images, there's some black-and-white striped ones that are clearly the result of some hiccup in the transmission or reception of the data. I haven't seen this kind of error before. Anybody know what exactly happened to make the photos look like this?

That looks a bit more like a computer hick up than transmission noise for the Jan 29 images .
But without being able to see the RAW data ???? only a guess

Clearly it's Cassini's interplanetary barcode system wacko.gif

Ack, forgot to include that in my first post. Thanks.

It's a little disappointing there's no imaging of Pandora ~60,000km pass, 87 degree phase angle....

One way we're saving money in the Equinox Mission (operations costs (as opposed to science team costs) are only 60% what they were in the prime mission), is to simplify sequences, and that includes limiting the number of targets per orbit. Saves wear and tear on the reaction wheels, too. So sometimes we have to pass up on tempting targets.

a few shots of rev 161
things that "might" have been shot
or
Could have if you were in the same orbit

Understood of course. smile.gif

No criticism intended of the (I'm sure) difficult choices as to what constitutes best use of the spacecraft and its operational budget.

Enceladus Image composite from February 20th raw images. (Mash-up of multiple images. 4 of the jet, and one showing the crescent.)

[This is not the image I was shooting for. I was trying to do a cool-o animated sequence showing a changing perspective of the jets using a crescent view from a previous image. But it didn't work out to be so interesting - the perspective didn't change]
