Many thanks, John.

May I suggest that we collect here some links for the best (yet not necessarily most complete) official textures of the major Uranus moons. This would provide a well-defined start. I did not find any official (rectangular) mosaic mappings though, but enough info to make these from existing spherical maps. Also, some of your textures appear extremely dark on my screens with "natural" brightness settings.

I do have some 1k rectangular mosaics in my collection including colors, but --helas-- without references. Like this one:

Steve Albers does have rectangular sets:

e.g.

but as you emphasized above, it's just "half the story".

Cheers,
Fridger
