Saturn's G ring was discovered by Voyager 1 in November 1980 and imaged again by Voyger 2 on August 26, 1981 from a range of about 175,000 kilometers. The 8000 kilometer wide G-ring is extreamly tenuous and difficult to see. It is more neutral in color than the E-ring. In this image the A-ring on the right hand side has been washed out due to the long exposure required to bring out the G-ring. Significant image processing was used to isolate the G-ring from the background noise. This included carefully flattening the image intensity across the image plane with low and high pass filtering applied to the G-ring region.
