Love the cracks in the dusty surface at the bottom there...


Nice mosaic Stu. What software do you use?

Thanks Paolo. Well, I could tell you, but then I'd have to... laugh.gif

Software:

"Autostitch" to, well, stitch the frames together into a mosaic.

"Registax" to sharpen it up with the software's wavelet sharpening tool, and change the gamma, contrast and brightness.

"PS Elements" to change lighting effects and basically tweak and mess about with it until something that makes me smile comes out the other end.

It was the guy with the squeegee that cleaned them up tongue.gif
Likely the spots are still there but teh lighting conditions are different.

Regarding Stu's Post #29 "Farewell" pic, that looks like a treacherous perch! I did have the good fortune to get run over by a MER rover at one of the JPL open houses several years ago, so I know Oppy's up to the task, but still -- after 8 years she's still quite a rock climber!

While the area was not that big, turning around proved difficult (we failed twice!). This is because the RF wheel steering actuator is no longer operational (we lost it around sol 300) so whenever we turn around we sort of drag the RF wheel. On rock so rough the rim of the wheel gets caught and turning around proves quite difficult. The slopes were not that high but the terrain surface we quite messy.

Very nice new micros of the sandy patch. Or is it more like wind-blown dust that caked together? In any case, they render superbly in 3D!

Last one for today. Are those wheel tracks (the straight mini-trenches that nearly reach across the image, two of which are parallel)?

Great anaglyphs, Walfy, love those!

Very special "thank you" to Paolo for providing me with some really useful (and detailed!) info about the story behind those MI images, which I've written a blog post around over on "Road to Endeavour" if anyone would like a look...

3D mosaic... just download it, put your glasses on, and scroll around it, imagining you're an ant on Mars...

If I read the data from today's drive correctly, Opportunity is currently 25m north of North Pole (is that possible? tongue.gif).
FHAZ from sol 2963.
