One hundred sol 384 ML thumbnails, (sort of) all in a row.

...and mhoward - placing the MC's over the Navs and tracing that path - nicely done.


That is a good way to look at things--nice to have the cardinal points on the horizon too!

According to the slope map, the rover shouldn't have too much trouble navigating the basin or whatever it's called:

That's based on the HiRISE DTM, which has a resolution of 1 meter per pixel. I wonder if there are still a lot of pitfalls and obstacles on the fine scale to worry about though. The terrain looks a little rough.

A rough circular pan from the current (385) location. I'll get to the map later. The orientation is probably off, I'll fix it when I have a full pan. (EDIT - I have fixed it now)

Data dropout. It'll be recovered at some point in the future.

Sol 385 - MC34 - 5 Frame Panorama of the "Basin"...

Full Resolution 5766 x 1305 Pixels:


...and a reduced resolution version with a few quick geologic correlations between the map (flipped with south as up) and the panorama...

Between those challenging night shots I just wanted to mention nice new MAHLIs, e.g. this one.
Here a color / reflectance blink made by additionally using this Sol 387 MAHLI image to calculate a difference image indicating reflectance. It may help to get an impression of the according surface structure.

Sol 387...

Eight frame MC 34/100 pano from Sol 387 looking SSW to SW (centered about 216 degrees). Nice view of that small flat mesa that presides over the NW rim of the basin and the light toned outcrops beneath it. Looks like we moved 26 meters in that direction today. HIRISE images show this small rise to be dotted with several small craters, and one can be seen quite well in the anaglyph on the far right side of its flat top just before it slopes away to the north.

MC 100:

PS, Ah, just saw yours Ed...and the irony is that I only created my version because I did not see yours earlier!

This is the location on sol 388. The rougher unit west of us looks interesting for future investigation.

Based on the drive, I'm going to take a wild guess that we might eventually be seeing a long-baseline stereo Mastcam mosaic of the area to the south.

That was my thought as well, long baseline stereo across the 'basin' to help plan activities - maybe it will have a name soon.

Also looks like they may be using the ChemCam RMI to look ahead. Below image DIY flat-fielded & contrast enhanced; see where it is pointed per jmknapp's site. It is part of a focus stack sequence so could perhaps yield both range and depth info.
