Full Version: Iapetus color mosaics
Unmanned > Outer Solar System > Saturn > Cassini Huygens > Cassini PDS
I've assembled the 8 different global narrow-angle, clear filter mosaics of Iapetus taken by Cassini on 31st Dec 2004 and 1st Jan 2005. The first mosaic you may already be familiar with, but I redid it to be in gamma-correct representation (as are the others). It's the only one that actually has 2 full RGB color footprints, all the other mosaics were colorized using much lower resolution wide-angle IR1/GRN/VIO data, except the last one where there was no color data available. They are meant to approximate natural color appearance. My Flickr page has some additional info on rough time of acquisition and number of footprints.

Here they are, chronologically, click for full resolution views:

Wonderful work, as usual Gordan - I remember that flyby very fondly! Your flickr account has enough material for at least two volumes of coffee-table books, I reckon... wink.gif
Very nice! Thanks!
