This image of Charon was received from New Horizons in September 21, 2015 with a resolution of about 2.9 km.

We have truly been spoiled by excellent to glorious images from the Solar System but this particular photo stands out as a milestone demonstrating the technical abilities reached by NASA engineers, photography experts, communications gurus and others who have made it possible.
