Are starlane lengths measured between system centers or system circles?
The latter seem to be the way it works now, which is odd.

Distances are measured from the centres of anything that appears to have some spatial extent, including systems. Fleets are shown slightly offset from their actual position on a starlane, though, so that they don't appear within system circles, even when they are very close to the system.
