Ooh, I'm liking that one Doug. smile.gif wheel.gif

I've (kind of) got something working to correct for dust on the lens, still a lot of work to be done, not far past 'proof of concept' at the moment. I'm reposting the sol 1291 both because even my current crude routine improves the mosaic a lot and also, by some fluke this process has also outputted (to my eye) a much more pleasing colour.



Right, must dash, going away for the weekend...

Nice one, Doug. Getting it to properly hide behind the drift like that must have been a bit of work.

If you turn off the left camera eye checkbox in the panorama settings, you will get a better view there. I've pretty much given up on Oppy's left cameras for now ( sad.gif ), but I'm now de-vignetting the right eye images for her.

For the computer guys,

is it possible to make and publish, here in Unmanned Spaceflight.com,

a small computer programme to correct the dust on the lens

of Opportunity.

It will be much appreciated by a lot of members.

I wonder how they will maneuver Oppy around the patch of sand in front of her with the stuck steering actuator. They've found an effective way of turning on level terrain, how well will that work on the slope?

Great perspective Alan. Thanks for digging that up. It's obvious now why they chose this location. There is a clear shot at each of the parent layering sections all the way down to the bottom.

Has anyone tried yet to sync this sequence up visually with the layers identified at Endurance?

What about the slope angle?
What I've got from the mobility data tells me the rover is on a (at least) 15º slope.
Well, I went back to look at the slope angle map I posted a couple of weeks ago, and if you put your location on it and do a little mental interpolation between the contour lines here, 15 degrees looks about right. It should get a little steeper after they make the turn to the right.

I thought the plan was to turn to Oppy's left (our right), Tom. I recall that the planning team had designed a very specific route over to the exposed Cabo Verde cliff faces, and that no straying off the path was going to be allowed. The path was designed to explore the light-colored "bathtub ring" and to keep Oppy on rocky, non-sandy footing.

As I seem to recall, the plan was for Oppy to enter pretty much where she entered, turn to her left at about the level she's at, and stair-step in a couple of legs down to the base of the Cabo Verde cliffs.

Does anyone have any information indicating that this is no longer the plan?

O'Doug: It was my recollection that the plan was to drive down and to the south, along the contact between the ejecta layer and undisturbed bedrock. At the moment I can't remember where I read that.

Here is the view from Sol 1293 taken inside Victoria

with the R0 Navcam.

By the moment I think they will drive almost straight ahead, perhaps slightly to the left to avoid driving with the right side wheels over this patch of sand.
We should know the truth on the evening of sol 1296.

After studying the Jvandriel's picture to precise about the supposed safe autonomy for Opportunity. The deeper side would be on the north side along the Cabo Verde than the south side. It is possible that Opportunity would be able to transverse over little sand, about 10 centimeters of thick. However, I think that the most interested places are the vertical stones of Cabo Verde and the south side.

Yes, Alan, nice work. A good complement to Tesheiner's wonderful overhead route maps.

I've revisited the late June and early July discussions and press releases, and it seems that all anyone was prepared to be specific about at that time, in re Oppy's exact preplanned path, was that she would head down to the "bright ring" layer (otherwise referred to as the "bathtub ring") and follow it around, parallel to the crater rim, observing and sampling as it went along. While it would appear that it would be easiest for Oppy to turn to her left and follow the bright layer to Cabo Verde, and while Squyres was very clear that there was a specific path laid out "from which we will not stray," that exact path was never shared with us, the little people...
