Dawn at Ceres - Framing Camera

The Dawn spacecraft is visiting the dwarf planet Ceres for the time period Dec. 26, 2014 through the end of the mission (TBD). Framing Camera 2 is one of two identical units flying on the Dawn spacecraft, and the only one acquiring science data at Vesta and Ceres. The data sets linked below will include raw (level 1a) and calibrated (level 1b) versions of all available images acquired during the Ceres Encounter. So far, the Approach, RC3, Survey, and HAMO L1a and L1b data are available, as well as the HAMO clear filter mosaics. An updated Calibration volume with added calibraton files derived from the Vesta-Ceres cruise is also available.
