Imaging Titan with a Tunable Filter

Series of images of Titan taken around the 2.0 micron methane window probing different layers of the atmosphere and the surface. The images are currently under thorough processing and analysis so as to reveal any subtle variations in wavelength that could be indicative of the spectral response of the various surface components, thus allowing the astronomers to identify them.
