This image reveals several new things about this scene. For example:
(1) The reddish emission south of Io came dominantly through the clear filter. It therefore probably represents scattered light from Io's lit crescent and Prometheus' plume, rather than emission from Io's Sodium Cloud (which came through both filters).
(2) The roundish red spot in Io's southern hemisphere contains a small yellow spot. This means that some thermal emission from the volcano Pele was detected by the green-yellow filter (as well as by the clear filter).
(3) The sky contains several concentrated yellowish spots which were thus seen at the same location on the sky through both filters (one such spot appears in the picture's northeast corner). These spots are almost certainly stars. By contrast, the eastern half of this image contains a number of green spots whose emission was thus detected by the green-yellow filter only. Since any star visible through the green-yellow filter would also be visible through the clear filter, these green spots are probably artifacts (e.g., cosmic ray hits on the CCD sensor).
