Yeah, wow. That just rose near the top of my favorite Saturn images. biggrin Shame we don't have the details; that's such a nice shot I can't believe it is not more widespread.

I too was unsatisfied with that, so I did some hunting, and came up with this: http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA08196

Titan and Dione. I love imagine this photo as a photo of alien titan world and it's moon. Or if Titan would orbit Sun, it would be classified as planet, and probably would have satellites.





This is Titan and Tethys.



Titan and Rhea. Most spectacular views IMO.







And this is epic! If only if would be color... (Rhea and Titan again)

And for fun: Starun's moons montage, all moons to scale and with the sane phase of 45°, and (I geuss) with the same exposure, showing their relative albedo. So this image may be used to adjust brightness of moons in SE. Image is quite big in full res!



Who can tell which every moon are?

My guess: Clockwise from top-left - Dione, Mimas, Titan, Iapetus, Hyperion, Enceladus, Tethys, and in the center is Rhea.

Mimas, Titan, and Enceladus seem really obvious.

The rest I would have difficulty getting right, good thing this isn't a test.

The really big one is obviously Titan. The one in the middle is second-largest, so it's Rhea. The one in the lower right seems to be Iapetus' dark side. The bright little one is Enceladus and the little one with the big crater Mimas. That leaves Dione and Tethys, and since I think Dione is the bigger one of the two, she'll be the one at the upper-right and Tethys the one below.

The irregular moon is probably Phoebe, considering it and Hyperion are the only irregular moons of Saturn that occassionally seem to get counted as major moons; but Hyperion has a bizarre sponge-like look that makes it stand very much apart.

You're right, it is Hyperion! I really should've looked at it better, considering it's probably the most recognisable minor moon in the Solar System.

We need a 3D model for Hyperion! Is somethere available its photo from other directions?

There are some.



Celestia also had a good model for Hyperion (and several other irregular moons) which you could use for reference as well.

EDIT: John van Vliet (naturally) also made a great 2k Hyperion map (downresed version below)

Atlas, and Saturn's atmosphere bends the ring image (most visible at the Encke gap) due to refraction :

Atlas :

Titan :

Enceladus partially eclipsed by the planet, and Titan in the distance :

Rhea close-up

I've crop ,150%zoom, and sharpen a image of Daphnis, try full view :
