I've started a new blog on this topic at http://futureplanets.blogspot.com/

This blog supplements UMSF by allowing on topic discussions that include politics and other topics not appropriate here.

The first entry is up with some additional news on the MSL funding and schedule problems.

A linked array of small telescopes could push the limit down. Add a laser and 'adaptive optics' applied to the array and you take care of the slight atmosphere. I doubt if there is a theoretical limit to resolution of the martian suface that can be obtained from orbit.
