If you want to go slightly more hardcore - you can download IMG's and process them VERY easily with Bjorns little program. I say it many many times, but it's true - I'm not a code monkey. I can't do HTML or PHP or any of those acronyms of hell, but even I... a temperamental artist (and I'm not even a very good artists ) - can manage that smile.gif

It's VERY satisfying to go from unintelligible files, to a well stitched colour mosaic.

I love this discussion! It's exactly what UMSF is about.
It reminds us we have to fight to get results and there is always somebody here to help... and challenge.
Thank you

To support Emily's point, here's a quick but eye-opening comparison between images made with, on the left, the "cruddy" ( © Emily Lakdawalla ) wink.gif raw images and, on the right, the equivalent PDS images...

Looking forward to trying this with some Endeavour horizon shots...

Stu,
I was about to say "Now THAT looks like an iron meteorite!" The images are significantly better. Great job!

Just a niggly comment: I would call the archived data "raw", not the jpegs available in realtime on the jpl site or exploratorium. In digital camera lingo, the raws are uncompressed, and therefore best quality, while the jpegs are compressed and so have lost information.

I agree that that's how the terms should be used, but since the Cassini and MER websites use "raw" to describe their JPEGs, that's the way the terms are going to be used, I'm afraid.

Is the stacking technique recommended for vista/horizon images ...





If its possible to get a clearer more dramatic view across the plains to Endeavour then I'll give this technique a shot.
