I wonder if this new view can improve the distance measurement any. This is a pretty good base line but the pointing accuracy and resolution are toy like compared to present telescopes. Present base lines are the orbit of Earth.

Yes, I am waiting to see the published parallax obtained using the Earth and New Horizons location, i.e. the new and improved baseline with parallax.
