i think most of us are using the old th_Saturn texture and that is in need of updating

so while i am ingesting Cassini Rev:203 mapping sequence into isis3

a concept 100% synthetic idea

Good idea, John, to have another go at Saturn...

For now, I am using a 2k Saturn texture for celestia.Sci that I made some years ago, when the blue Northern color became known via Cassini.

2k Saturn texture (for download):

I also made my own 4k Saturn rings from the quite recent hires data by Cassini.

Here is a global view

and here a detailed view of the high ring resolution:

Yet, notably the rings need further work, to reproduce their differing albedo, when looking from above and below the ringplane (!), respectively. A further independent requirement is to implement the correct transparency of the ring as function of the radial distance from Saturn's cloudy surface. In my case, the transparency is OK, as well as the one-sided albedo (top view). The strongly varying transparency profile of the Saturn ring was derived from hires stellar transit data taken from Earth!

not to bad for a first run
--FILTER_NAME = ("CL1","GRN")
Image
polar stereo
Image
blended with the th_Saturn map and recolored
-- 4k map--
Image

the image list
all of these are "FILTER_NAME = ("CL1","GRN")"
Code:
W1775154914_1.IMG
W1775160202_1.IMG
W1775165490_1.IMG
W1775170778_1.IMG
W1775176066_1.IMG
W1775181354_1.IMG
W1775184316_1.IMG

and recolored partly based on PIA12513.tif

screenshots

Image Image Image Image

this is the green filter ( aprox. 570 NM )
now on to the CB2 set ( aprox. 750 NM ) and MT2 ( aprox . 727 NM )

there are NO red and blue for this set
