Crescent Dione - Rev 16

Cassini mosaic of Saturn's moon Dione, taken on October 11, 2005. This image was taken from a distance of ~22,000 km as the spacecraft was approaching for a targeted flyby. This mosaic combines a high-resolution imaging sequence along the daylit horizon with a lower-resolution image that covers parts of the Saturn-lit nightside not covered in the high-resolution mosaic.
