The LORRI sensor has a resolution of θ = 5µrad or 1 arcsec per pixel. We can do a simple geometric approach to see which distance x corresponds to a change in the apparent position of a nearby star (say d = 8 ly) of one pixel. This is simply $\sin \theta \cdot d = x = 2.5~\rm AU$. That would be the position precision, if the position of at least 2 nearby ...
