Yes, very beautiful. That's Mare Marginis and the crater Neper on its southern (bottom) edge in the first image.

CE-5T1 has taken some photos of moon and earth,very beautiful!


Here are the photos in full resolution, from Xinhua News:

(apparently they were taken from the solar array monitoring camera - the same as the one used on Chang'e 2, so this should be the full shot)

Now, *that* ain't a tinted-blue B&W pic of Earth! Very nice.

Phil, Cosmic Penguin: what do you think the correct image credit is on these photos?

My best guess is CAST - the China Academy of Space Technology.

I can't make sense of the illumination angle in the middle image. The Moon looks to be lit a little more from below and the Earth a little more from the side. Is it just me?

EDIT: the explanation lies in this being a wide angle view. It makes sense when the image is viewed from close enough. (Earth should subtend around 2 degrees.)

Successful reentry and landing! Here's Emily's blog article:

I can't find an English-language source for this so far, but I'm very curious about the trajectory of the 'skip' that it did before reentry. Where did it execute this maneuver (i.e., over what part of the Earth)? Wondering how far it skipped.

Thanks. I was looking for something with more detail about the reentry maneuver itself, but it's possible--even likely, I guess--that that information is not publicly available.

I am relaying some images taken by a PLA journalist at the control center and posted at http://www.81.cn/jwgz/2014-11/01/content_6206104.htm , including an actual image during the reentry phase.

At page 11 of that webpage, there is a cartoon showing the procedure of the process. Emily's making a good point (https://twitter.com/elakdawalla/status/528366721875193857) that the service module might still be in the orbit. The cartoon mentioned that a maneuver was performed "to avoid collision with the capsule" but I am not seeing any information about the service module after the separation.

http://news.cntv.cn/2014/11/01/ARTI1414801849741743.shtml
1:00 videos of separation between service module and capsule; starting 2:40 live video of capsule reentry.

I am answering myself... according to SASTIND head Xu Dazhe, service module is now "on its way back to the Moon" for "extending mission": http://news.cntv.cn/2014/11/01/VIDE1414801845491297.shtml at 1:40 (in Chinese).

Chang'e 5 T1 service module mission extends to May 2015. The module will fly to EML2 point first, and then to a lunar orbit.
