Anyone have or know where I can find the latest images of the ESM? I have looked myself but the dates are very old. I want to compare to an image from a ESA video showing the Orion CM and ESM together and there is a dish attached to the back of the ESM.

Thank you for those images. I have seen those images before. Here is the video: .

Looks like that video is just using the Orion CEV service module with ATV-style solar wings instead of the UltraFlex panels from CEV. Note the larger Orion Main Engine and the 4 pods jutting out from the sides for the auxiliary thrusters, among other issues. CEV did plan to use such a dish.
