In perfect agreement with the chronometric precision with which the landing phases took place, InSight (the red dot) missed the center of the predicted ellipse (ellipse in blue) by only about ten kilometers!
From the measurements taken on this image the coordinates of the exact landing point are as follows:
Latitude: 4° 30′ 6″ N Longitude 135° 37′ 27″ E
Given the scale of the image the margin of error is ± 6″.
