Saturn in the Raw

The Cassini mission to Saturn is revolutionizing our understanding of the planet, its moons, rings and more. You can see wonderfully processed images on their website and on the CICLOPS, the website of the imaging team.

One of the nice things about the mission is the ability to see raw, unprocessed images before they get cleaned up for mass consumption. Here is a wonderful film of Cassini's raw images. They are chalk full of cosmic ray streaks, out of focus dust specks and other things.  In spite of all that, it is beautiful.
