First Cassini Titan Images released

The first Cassini images of Titan have been released to the public. These are two of the best images to show surface features (though not the only ones in the ~240 km/pixel range crop. The above images shows a continent named Xanadu (hopefully some craters on that continent will be named Kane Crater and Welles Crater). The other image in the release shows the dark features that some what resembles the head of a dragon (to me though it looks more like a dingo's head :)

Anyways, enjoy. It only gets better from here.
