NULT Telescope Pluto

Pluto is a remote solar system object that's so far away and so faint that just finding it is a job. However, the 24-meter telescope performs well in showing some surface markings, light and dark features and has good resolution of the disk. A larger number of these images taken over time can be used for creating a map of Pluto. This image employs the Universe Penetrator UP, a device originally intended for penetrating space and time in our known Universe, and the Big Brain which controls the system. It seems the UP is doing surprisingly well for solar system objects however the Moon required an additional Adjunct for 3-meter resolution.
