If you just need public domain Landsat images, then you can download
orthorectified Geocover images from Landsat.org and a few other places.  Those
images need to be colour adjusted, thoug.  Then there used to be a fine place
for downloading colour balanced mosaics, geotorrent.org, but the torrent seems
to be down now. Image catalog is still available.  I guess I have the European
mosaic somewhere on my hard disk if it happens to be of some use for you.
