I know it is still early days, but do the current images from Huygens represent the best resolution we can expect? So far they seem extremely low resolution and grainy. I didn't expect crystal clear imagery, but what I have seen so far lacks a lot of detail and reminds me of mission footage from the 60's and 70's.
I thought I read an ESA official boasting that Huygens was equipped with cameras that had a resolution 'approaching that of the human eye'. That may be true in relation to frequency response, but the Huygens website states the 'High Resolution Imager' has a resolution of only 160x256 pixels, which is slightly worse than that of my cell phone. I was expecting something like the Mars rover panoramic camera shots.
I understand that taking fancy photo's wasn't the prime purpose of the mission, and there are severe limitations of flying a camera to Titan and operating it in the Titan atmosphere. Even so, considering the PR value of space imagery, is a 160x256 resolution the best ESA could manage when they designed and launched Huygens? :-?
