Even including smaller moons, no moon matches the location of the outer dot. It would have to be exterior to Miranda (if in the ring plane).

I should also add that this was created using red-near IR filters, as there is no data available any "bluer" than red in this set.

Here is the Oberon sequence. It is hard to believe that this is the best sequence we have for Oberon, but it is.

Sad to see, that this is the best of Oberon - but a reason why to get an orbiter around Uranus in not so far away future and hopefully in our lifetime.

Let me mention some visible structures (don't if they got names ?):

There's a massive impact mid center of the Oberon disk, also visible are several rays connected with a second smaller impact more left.
All over the landscape white areas are visible - probably of the same type as on Iapetus trailing hemisphere ?
There's a huge mountain at the lower left rim of the disk, maybe the central peak of an impact structure, which I cannot detect for myself...

Bye.

Here is Tayfun Oner's map, which is labeled with some of the few names. http://www.solarviews.com/raw/uranus/obermap2.jpg

Also, comparison between these two images show that the peak on the limb is associated with a large basin. Also, there is a large basin next to Coriolanus on the terminator, which can be seen clearly in the distant image.

Here is my first Oberon map revision in nearly 3 years - thanks to the updated imagery from Ted Stryk. In addition to an earlier color image from Ted, the two largest ones are included from the new set:

I think the other smaller images may cover much of the same territory, though it is hard to be sure.

That's the latest,

Steve
