Beautiful! Most of the images show ridges and fault lines that eppear to be composed of a series or row of tiny craters. Camera effect or vibration in craft? Images 4&5, the long darker gray smokey shapes in lower right quads...are those the plumes? They seem to cross in front of surace lines and shapes . What a thrill to examine these other worlds, thanks folks. RonG
