it's made in 8 bit... I know, my mistake, 256 levels instead 65536.

Maybe i will try to re-render the PSD files in 16 bit.

Ok, it have no sense - resolution of the map is low, so terrain is smooth anyway.

Solaris, is the second picture in true colors? Because if it is it means that the atmosphere is bluish like I always imagined cry




The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.

(still don't know why everyone is doing this...)

The second picture makes pluto look really tiny! The mountains almost looks like rocks on a beach.

Salvo, it have been colorized with global MVIC data, so I guess it is similar to true color, but the hue of the haze is a rough approximation. According to John Spencer (NH's team member) :
Quote
this was a single channel image (we wouldn't have held out on you if we'd had color!). Several of our closest MVIC images were b/w rather than color, because of limited time near closest approach- we can take B/W images faster than color ones, and they allow higher-res LORRI riders. We still don't know what color the haze is, though we'll have lower-resolution high-phase color images soon, which will answer that question.

Franz, your Pluto texture was actually used in Universe Sandbox. Do you think that your textures of Pluto and Charon may eventually become default textures in future versions of Space Engine?

New high resolution photos of Charon



Along the canyon it seems came off a huge block of crust of the north hemisphere that now sinks into the ground of the southern hemisphere!





Sorry for my English! ;)
