NACO Images of Titan's Surface

An image of Titan by NACO, obtained in a waveband at 1.3 μm that does not perfectly match an atmospheric window is compared to a SDI-NACO image of the same region. The greater clarity and contrast of the latter is evident; it is due to the smaller degree of "atmospheric contamination".
