In case ustrax wasn't clear, rolleyes.gif there is a new release showing surface details resolved by VIRTIS.

I wonder, could any of you folks who like playing with simulated views of the planets produce a better Magellan comparison image than the one ESA released? They used a horrible base map. The comparison should be a global view centered at 270 E, 27 S, according to the caption information.
