I was wrong! Is one image with slightly higher resolution, but photographed by Voyager 2 before image, which I posted above. But in this image is surface actually closer, so resolution is 11.5 km/pix compared to 11.7 km/pix in picture above.

And something to Uranus orbiter:

Online presentation (with audio) is somewhere too, but I don't know where.

Best image of Uranus south pole. Circular feature is real (some details not). Nearly horizontal lines are artifacts from flatfielding.

The slightly lighter core inside the darker second ring could be faceted like the Saturn hexagon. But any sort of blips at single 60-degree intervals from each other is enough to make part of a blurry circle look like part of a hexagon.

Pretty cool to see structure there, though.

Effectively highest resolution view from any of Voyagers. Two shots after well known Miranda mosaic images. NAC frames over one WAC frame. Color is artificial, but very close to real. It's based on the HST photometry. Resolution is 280 m/pix.

Thanks Decepticon! tongue.gif

And new image from Uranus system - moon Ariel. Resolution of this stereopair is around 1.55 km/pix.

Moon Ariel resampled at 1 km/pix (real resolution ~ 1.2 km/pix).

WOW! That's the best look at that moon I've ever seen!

Actually its so good I'm looking at that dramatic resurfacing in a new light. There's a real paucity of medium to large craters in that image?

Stefan and Ugordan: Thanks!

Antipode:
Actually yes, surface of Ariel is relatively young. I don't know about any large crater on that moon. Even medium craters are scarce.
Moreover some parts looks like surface of Enceladus. In terms of geologic activity, Ariel is perhaps between Enceladus and Dione.

Great work! That is the mosaic I based my first LPSC conference on http://www.planetary.org/blog/article/00001362/

always nice to see a continued interest in the verdant orb.

dont forget these nice bits, including topography:

Yes, I know about this, more of your images are in this topic http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.php?showtopic=3932 .
My favourite is your "combo" image, but now, I don't know exact adress.

This is something new for me. I know your work on galilean satellites, saturnian satellites, Miranda and Triton, but I missed Ariel. I especially love black and white topography maps!

"New" images of Umbriel. Image data were resampled to 3 km/pix and 5 km/pix (clear-clear-violet-green sequence) and combined together. Real resolution is 5.16 km/pix and 9.67 km/pix (multicolor sequence).

Three images of Titania. All resampled from original resolution 6.7 km/pix, 4.6 km/pix and 3.4 km/pix.
