Thought this deserved a new thread- we can't talk about EVERY LRO target in the one thread smile.gif

I made a mistake in this one - I didn't include the thruster plume guards. My MER/MPF simulation for HiRISE seemed to come out about right - so fingers crossed that this will be there or there abouts as well. Still in a comissioning phase, something of a slant angle - I'd expect approx 1.5m/pixel if it's at the 120km figure mentioned earlier.

Look on the extreme right side - Triplet crater only just makes it onto the image.

Thanks! Maybe an eighth of the image height above the center.

I was scanning for Cone crater and Triplet but, of course, no Cone crater. We'll have to look for the later shots to see exactly where Al and Ed ended up before turning back down the mountain without that view...
