Re: [guide-user] Moon map

How come you could get more images of planets and satellites to guide 9.?
For in this web images that are not on guide 9 as is the case of Titan, etc they are pluton
Is it possible to get an image of Saturn more in line with reality?


¿Como se le podrian meter mas imagenes de planetas y satelites al guide 9.?
Pues en esa web se ven imagenes  que no salen en guide 9 como es el caso de Titan, pluton etc
¿Hay pòsibilidad de meter alguna imagen de Saturno mas acorde a lo real?

Hi Dave,

For that, you should be able to right-click on the Moon, then
on Display, then Options. You'll see some radio buttons for selecting
which image is to be used. You probably want the 'Clementine image'.
(Same trick works with getting different images for the planets,
keeping in mind that not all planets have more than one image. Or
even just one image.)

At some point, I do want to take some maps made by Steve Albers
for Pluto and Charon, and process them into Guide's format :

as well as a few other maps he's either done or provides. The major
issue with Pluto will be the "retrograde" issue... which has been
muddied still further by the is-it-a-planet-or-isn't-it nonsense.
When Pluto was a planet, the official position was that it was
retrograde. As a dwarf planet, it's prograde, and the lat/lon
system has been modified accordingly.
