Merged MRI and SLI images acquired after the Huygens probe soft-landing. Horizon position implies a pitch of the DISR nose upward by 1.7 plusminus 0.2° with no measurable roll. 'Stones' 10–15 cm in size lie above darker, finer-grained substrate in a variable spatial distribution. Brightening of the upper left side of several rocks suggests solar illumination from that direction, implying a southerly view, which agrees with preliminary evidence from other data sets. A region with a relatively low number of rocks lies between clusters of rocks in the foreground and the background and matches the general orientation of channel-like features in the low-altitude pan of Fig. 3. The bright spot in the lower right corner is the illumination of the DISR surface science lamp.
