Windows 7: Image (mirror) help requested

Finally have 3 OS's set up on primary partitions on separate HD's. Would like thoughts on imageing to Blu Ray. Seems like only need one disc for each OS. The name of a good and hopefully simple program would be appreciated.
TIA Art.

Thanks for the quick reply, but I want to use a common program to image each OS separately. I am not interested in backups, only something to mirror a new clean install including all the utility programs. Since I may not have internet access at times (mobile & travelling) a screwed up OS could take weeks to rebuild. Would Acronis be a thought here or is there something simpler?

Acronis will make an image and is fairly well regarded by many. Many prople here use Macrium Free. It is probably the simplest program to use. I would suggest though, whatever program you choose, make sure the restore disks work correctly and do a test restore to assure yourself that it will work when needed. The best imaging program can go wrong at times, that's why I always use at least 2 different programs to image with.
