Ganymede's south pole region from Voyager 2. All images resampled to resolution 500 m/pix. Real resolution is around 550 m/pix.
Color is from wide angle images (orange, green and violet filter).

That's very nice!

One more example of what can be done with the Voyager images using modern computers and software. This is one of the best Voyager mosaics I have seen of Ganymede and of course much better than any of the official stuff produced back in 1979.

Yes, new reprocessed images from Voyagers are mostly better than old official versions, but I have great respect to people who made this old images.
With much slower computers and not very user friendly software, it must have been really damn difficult.

Many were processed using a VAX. I can't even imagine it.

Very impressive Machi.
The terrain in the far south near the terminator is incredibly similar to Enceladus' south polar terrain (on a much larger scale of course)

Brilliant work, Daniel!
I'm beginning to think that a website based upon the NASA Planetary Photojournal site, but dedicated solely to 'amateur' image products, might be a good way of collating the ever-growing portfolio of great work produced by people on here. We could even call it the 'UMSF Photojournal'.
Oh, Ted: I used to own a VAX. It was the best darn vacuum-cleaner I've ever had...

Ian, I have actually similar idea and in fact it's partially on the way. Because I haven't my own server, I must use public server with 300 - 500 MB data storage.
So I suppose, that in first phase I will create simple gallery with my images (png's) and then (second phase) I will be using only thumbnails with location reference to full image or page with image.
There is minor problem with my programming skills, so I will plan only simple html gallery with thumbnails and basic informations about every image.
