Post subject:  Semi-fictional map of Pluto

I decided to take Marc Buie's maps of Pluto and Charon and add some extra detail to them. Enjoy.

Nice...

did you compare notably the map orientation with my earlier Marc Buie texture that I got in correspondence with him?

I also gave there the links pointing to the underlying scientific publications, in case anyone is interested. It is still amazing what amount of detail could be seen with Hubble!

I did, actually. Here I've tried to duplicate one of your screenshots. While the texture lines up pretty well, Charon's position does not. I should probably try to fix that.

EDIT: Dumb mistake. Mistook the Submit button for the Add File button somehow; I hadn't finished this post yet. Also, here's a download link.
