Very nice! You can make out crater rim structures that have obviously been buried for millions, if not billions, of years. That's exactly what you'd expect to see, of course, but it is cool beyond description to actually see it.

Great stuff! The second paper down that list includes some names for craters near the lander. They are taken from traditional Chinese names for constellations and parts of the sky. I will be doing something with these soon, but I'm not sure these are the same names I got a glimpse of a few months ago. Still much to learn!
