Damn, the best picture is a bit overexposed. mad.gif

Wow, what a great set of images, including Epimetheus and Janus playing rocks. Very exciting to be on the Cassini site as the boxes with red X's turn to impossibly great images.

EDIT: From the image someone said was overexposed I now see the contrast is higher than I expected (I'm looking at the images as I type wink.gif).

I'm guessing low albedo variations show up so clearly because of the low phase angle here.

Modifying levels and curves on this image in Pshop, I get this:

There seems to be ridges (outcrops?) on the central peak of Herschel.

Four of the images from the encounter are highlighted on the CICLOPS website:

There is also a set of Tethys images from about 177,000km available too.

Nice one, charborob. The darkening in the crater walls is really pronounced in that image. Gordon's interpretation is enticing; I look forward to hearing other possibilities.

Kudos once again to the Cassini team for the spectacular views of another world. What amazing times we live in.

I would like to see your version, for sure is different (at least in terms of alignment technique, which was difficult for me...) wink.gif

Wonderful as always.

Yeah, Stu, the fact we get access to these images so quickly still boggles this old space hound.

What is really amazing to me is that we have this old, battered moon (on the surface) riding right next to the most active mid-sized moon Enceladus.
Location in a system does not necessarily tell the whole story?!
