This narrow angle ISS ( Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem) image is one of the best of a sequence of narrow angle frames taken of the Moon. The 80 msec exposure (which is one of the frames in the narrow angle movie above) was taken through a spectral filter centered at 0.45 microns; the filter bandpass was 100 angstroms wide. The spatial scale of the image is ~ 2.3 km/pixel.
