The four images for this mosaic were from a distance of 9.9 kilometers from the center of the comet, or only 7.9 kilometers from the surface. The view is across the small lobe to the large lobe. Image scale ranges from about 0.63 m/pixel on the part of the comet that is close to the viewer, to about 0.93m/pixel on the large lobe, farther from the viewer.
