New Telesto Image: Trojan Telesto

CICLOPS has released this highest resolution view of the Tethys trojan Telesto. This moon, only 24 kilometers across, has not yet been seen at high enough resolution to resolve surface features, but images such as this one do allow for the beginning of shape modeling. Higher resolution images should come later this year during encounters that bring Cassini within 20,000 km of this moon.
