New batches of Cassini Raw Images of several moons.

In case people have their eye off the ball, a new batch of many raw images of Saturns's moons, Mimas, Rhea, Dione have been on (temporary) display. See [url=http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/images/raw/raw-images-list.cfm?browseLatest=1]
Multimedia - Images - Raw Images - Results[/url] ( http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia/i ... seLatest=1 ) quick, before they disappear off page 30...

Disappear? You can always select a target and choose observation time: newest.

But yes, there are many good views in this batch, including the best views of Mimas Cassini can acquire during the whole primary mission.

Images showing the crescent Tethys nightside lit with Saturnshine plus two large craters on terminator look really dramatic.

Ah, you noticed the Tethys ones! They are good, aren't they...

I mentioned the page 30 thing because after that you have to hunt for them instead of just seeing them in the 'latest' seciton.

Steve Albers has produced a spectacular new map of Mimas based on these latest Cassini images. Check it out here.
