Hi,
CASSINI has transmitted 184 pics (!) over the last days.
Here five takeouts, 3-4x enlargement:

Maybe somebody is able to combine some of those images to show more details.

Bye.

Hi,
nice pic Phil - I didn't notice the 2 originals on the JPL/NASA page at all.
It'll may help to measure the depth of Snowman A and the hight of its central peak... wink.gif

Have you tried to combine some of the Nov.27th images, probably getting some colored ones?

Bye.

Hallo,
one probably better resolved and enlarged pic of the last far-encounter is on the JPL/NASA page.

Date: 2006-11-27
Distance: ~2 mio km
Resolution: 12 km/pixel

Sadly no color composite... sad.gif

Bye.
