let's look at the bright side: maybe CE-4 will finally fly before CE-5

Confirmation that the Chang'E 5 schedule will change, though no details of how. Other rumours suggest CE4 in 2018, CE5 in 2019, CE6 in 2020. Paolo - you may be right!

Chang'E 5 T1, the mission which tested the return capsule design for Chang'E 5, also imaged the CE5 landing area near Rumker - see a few posts above this for more details. This paper:

https://www.spiedigitallibrary.org/conferen...623.short?SSO=1

describes attempts to de-blur these images. (you can't get the paper without subscription, but you can get the abstract from that page).

This probably explains why so few images have been released. In any case, LRO images will be better and are freely available for the mission planners to use.
