Super high-resolution global view of Dione, plus rings
This super high-resolution view of Dione is a mosaic of 14 footprints, images taken through infrared, green, and ultraviolet filters processed to approximate the color that the human eye would see. In the background, Saturn's ring system is foreshortened to a thin double yellow line.

Mosaic contains high resolution data from 14 images and color from another 42 (filters UV3, GRN, and IR1).
Original high resolution images had resolution 349 - 476 m/pix and final mosaic has 300 m/pix resolution.
