Processed version of Perijove 3 “RING DETECTION TEST UPDATED” image JNCE_2016346_03R00112_V02-raw.png (v14).

The ring is split across segments 44 and 45. Orion is in 36-40.

Full segments are shown, so there is duplication near segment boundaries, causing the ring discontinuity and possibly a few “double stars”.

Segments are in Junocam raw data order. Rotate image 180º to orient Orion into a standing position.

Processing removed persistent bright streaks. However, a transient streak that disappeared between

segments 42 and 43 was left in.

(p.s. I’m curious what the across segment modulated signal is at the top and bottom of the

raw data, and if it is related the faint modulation in the dark areas.)
