Maksim writes: “I create color images out of raw, black & white Cassini images using PaintShop Pro or Photoshop. This usually involves making RGB composites out of the visible, infrared or ultraviolet data. I always enjoy seeing space objects in color, and love bringing out details normally invisible to the human eye.”

The Cassini-Huygens mission is a cooperative project of NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, manages the mission for NASA's Science Mission Directorate, Washington, D.C. The Cassini orbiter and its two onboard cameras were designed, developed and assembled at JPL. The imaging operations center is based at the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colo.
