Gordan is a Croatian software developer and amateur astrophotographer. He dabbles in planetary image processing, creating color composites from datasets such as Cassini/Huygens, as he is "somewhat underwhelmed by the frequency the Cassini Imaging Team releases color composites."

Small Asteroids and Comets Visited by Spacecraft as of December 2018, in Color

February 25, 2020

A montage of 18 of the 20 asteroids and comets that have been photographed up close as of December 2018, when New Horizons flew past Arrokoth. This version is in color but does not show the bodies at their correct relative albedo or brightness. Not included are Vesta or Ceres, both of which are many times larger than Lutetia.

Many Cassini views of Tethys

September 10, 2017

This montage presents just a few of the views of Tethys, Saturn's fifth largest moon, that have been captured by Cassini since its arrival. One prominent feature on Tethys is gigantic double-ringed impact basin called Odysseus; it is brought into relief in the second and third images in the second row of this montage. Tethys also has a backwards-"S"-shaped canyon system called Ithaca Chasma that curves around half of the moon. Another recognizable feature is a "T" shape made by five craters. These are clearest in the lower left image. Three craters make a vertical line: Phemius, Polyphemus, and Ajax. To the west of Polyphemus are two more: Arete and an unnamed crater. To the east of this "T" is a larger flat-floored crater, Penelope. Some of these images are public releases from the Cassini imaging team, while others have been composed from raw images by enthusiasts Gordan Ugarkovic and Orion.

Distant Dione

January 18, 2016

Cassini captured this view of Saturn with Dione visible beyond Saturn's limb using its wide-angle camera on 16 September 2014.
