This image of Dione was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Jan. 3, 2008, when it was approximately 129,000 kilometres away from Dione and at a Sun-Dione-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 87 degrees.

The view captures terrain stretching from about 30 degrees south latitude to about 65 degrees north latitude on the moon's Saturn-facing side. Cassini obtained this view from a position 48 degrees above the equator of Dione. North is up.

This image of the southern hemisphere on Dione's anti-Saturn side was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Dec. 19, 2007.
The image was obtained at a distance of approximately 240,000 kilometres from Dione and at a Sun-Dione-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 44 degrees.

Most of the medium-sized craters visible here have pointed central peaks, owing to the rebound of material following the craters' initial formation.

The view is centred on 9 degrees north latitude, 51 degrees west longitude.
North on Dione is up.

This image of bright linea -- geologically fresh-looking, icy canyons -- on Dione, was taken by the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Sept. 2, 2007 using a spectral filter sensitive to wavelengths of infrared light centred at 750 nanometers.
The view looks toward the trailing hemisphere of Dione, at a Sun-Dione-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 9 degrees; and when the spacecraft was approximately 1.9 million kilometres from Dione.
