The last batch of NAVCAM images taken by Rosetta during the final month of its incredible mission at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko have been released to the Archive Image Browser.

The image set covers the period 2-30 September when the spacecraft was on elliptical orbits that sometimes brought it to within 2 km of the comet's surface (watch this video for a reminder of Rosetta's 'end of mission' orbits).
The archive release also includes the final five NAVCAM images that were published on 30 September, taken shortly after the spacecraft's collision manoeuvre was executed on 29 September.
The new image sets can be found in folders MTP034 and MTP035.
