New Mimas Image: Target Locked

CICLOPS has released a new view of Mimas demonstrating the stability of the spacecraft pointing. The image shows Mimas against the backdrop of a ring-shadowed Saturn. For the observation, the spacecraft tracked Mimas during the exposure, leaving Mimas unsmeared while Saturn is smeared. The image was taken last month and the resolution on Mimas is 7 km/pixel.
