Galileo's complete Ida and Dactyl image catalog

Vertical stacks of images were captured close to each other in time through different-color filters. Horizontal lines crossing individual images are data gaps.

You can download all these data in their original PDS format as well as PNG versions in this 8MB Zip file.
