The view is a mosaic of four color images. Data were captured by Cassini on October 14, 2009 through infrared, green, and ultraviolet filters. Gordan Ugarkovic produced this "natural-ish" color version from this more extended palette. The large crater near the center of the disk is Penelope; to the west of Penelope there is a north-south line of the three craters Phemius, Polyphemus, and Ajax. Antinous is the large crater far to the south of these.
