On the Celestia Motherlode site have been published these wonderful add-ons.

John did publish anywhere similar add-ons for Europa and Ganymede?

John did post an 8k Ganymede Normal Map some time ago, but it has since been taken down. I, having a copy of it, uploaded it here.

Good! Thank you. It remains to find Europa. Does John have it at all?

I'm afraid that I don't have a copy of John's Europa normal map (that is, if he made one).

You could try messaging John on Celestial Matters. He is more active there.
