I have posted some new views of Enceladus - based on a new topographic map of the south polar region at 20 meter resolution - on my stereo topography blog ( stereomoons.blogspot.com ) as well as on my Facebook page (search under my name). I also attach a few here for viewing. They are based on e80 encounter data from August 2008. These views include the tiger stripe tectonic ridges Damascus, Baghdad and Cairo Sulcus. Additional details can be supplied for special requests.
Two movies have also been posted on those two sites. The blog movies are overcompressed but the Facebook ones are fine.
Enjoy!
Paul

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

These are fabulous, Paul! What's the vertical exaggeration?

Hmmmm. When I convert to jpeg for the rendering I lose the original values. Itmight be possible to guess based on the true values I posted earlier if some eager young lad wants to try it.

thanks Ted!

the stereomoons.blogspot.com site tends to overcompress the movies, so I have posted them to my Facebook site (i cannot shrink them to fit the 1 MB upload limit at UMSF), and one of them to Youtube as an experiment. If anyone knows a better more artistically included video/photo hosting site, I'd love to here about it!
Let me know if you have any difficulties.

cheers
