Still, that is good. The recent images have so much going on. Later images transmitted and images on-the-ground-but-going-to PDS can only sweeten things.

What is the highest resolution we expect? I recall reading it in a journal article that I no longer have a link to. Something around 140 M/pixel is what comes to mind.

Does anyone know, at what point on Charon's surface is the center of the Pluto-facing side?

Zero lat, zero longitude?

That would certainly be a logical convention for mapping... and I believe the correct one. The caption to the first Charon map released by nasa was:

Global map of Charon as of July 30, 2015. The map is in simple cylindrical projection, with zero longitude (the Pluto-facing direction) in the center. It includes all available resolved images of the moon’s surface captured between July 7-14, 2015 on the anti-Pluto facing hemisphere. Image credit: NASA / Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory / Southwest Research Institute.

Is it the map linked in posts 6 and 7 of this thread?

Got it. I thought you were suggesting there was a newer map that included the most recently released imagery.

The recently released image is so beautiful, I'm not really looking forward to seeing it embedded in a cylindrical map with the low resolution fuzz all around...
