You know, Pete, I really wanna do a better job resolving the rings. If possible. You and I both noted the brighter ring in the B ring butted up against the Cassini division. But, it's really not, they are set back by a fainter B ring, but we have not shown that gap between the bright ring and the division. I know that fainter ring structure is there, it's easily visible in hi res images. But, I'll be darned if it's not hard to see. Same thing with the Enke minimum, it's a dimmer ring structure between two brighter A ring segments. But, it looks very thin (and is not the Enke Gap) compared to the breadth of the A ring. I am wondering what this is telling us about resolution and contrast of the rings. Maybe the dimmer outer edge of the B ring adds to Cassini's visibility.
Look how much distance is between that brighter ring segment and Cassini itself. We should be able to see that. These are not small features.
Or maybe not...
Edit: thinking more about this, maybe that bright B ring segment really is bright all the way to Cassini, maybe it's just a tad brighter on the inner edge. Now, that's a contrast challenge. Just gotta look closer and see. With that feature and the temperate zones, Saturn really does become a difficult object of low contrast.
