sol 1173: 4 frames from the R-MastCam, MS ICE, some interesting ripple like features, eroded channels? Left of center on the distant crater rim wall. Colours somewhat over processed as I was trying to remove a stubborn green cast.

Meanwhile: Let me share this wallpaper of Dune 2 @Bagnold (2560 x 1080 pixels)

It comes with an extended sky, which I think really makes the NavCam's pop. Parts of Mount Sharp from Sol 1169 were used to fill out the horizon.

From the stitching alone you can see that it's not my work, but from someone who has applied for membership here at UMSF. Hopefully that application will be processed soon, so we can see more of these images.

Another view of the wall of Gale crater, this time looking west:



And with contrast increased to highlight gully-like features on the side of the mountains:

Combined NAVCAM travel animation for Sols 1173-1174 is 86 frames.
Here's a small preview of the left NAVCAM's view.

And here is the full-size stereo pair animation for Parallel and Cross-Eye viewing. File sizes are 13 MiB each.
The camera angle changes many times during the animation.

Here is a 3D DTM model that I generated using Navcam images from Sol-1174. You can rotate, and zoom up in the scene and even measure the size of objects and distances.

Two sections of the panorama taken with MC100 on sol 1169 at 16h10 local time. These two sections can be combined together but the MC100 picture that makes the connection was not taken with the same exposure time, hence it is difficult to debayer and calibrate colors correctly.

Mission Update by Ken Herkenhoff - Sol 1181: Mobility testing LINK
QUOTE
Due to problems at the Goldstone DSN complex, the bundle of command sequences generated for Sol 1180 could not be sent to MSL. So the rover performed minimal activities on Sol 1180, as expected in “runout” mode. The good news is that the rover’s batteries are charged up, and the engineering team determined that activities can be planned after the heater table update by avoiding the types of heating that are affected by the update. So the Sol 1181 plan includes the first part of the mobility test: drive a few meters into the dark sand in front of the rover, then back up enough to allow study of the rover tracks using the arm instruments. During the drive, MARDI will acquire many images of the surface behind the left front wheel, to document the sand as it is disturbed by the wheel. After the drive and the standard post-drive imaging are completed, ChemCam will observe its calibration targets, RMI and Mastcam will image part of Mount Sharp in the distance, and Navcam will search for clouds.

Interesting hue variations on the dunes. Here I've increased the saturation:

Redder in between the crests, perhaps due to more dust collecting there?

Reprojected Hazcam images show a little toe-dip into the dark sand on sol 1181.

Great work James and a very useful measuring tool... smile.gif

Meanwhile here is a few more of the available L-NavCam's roughly stitched and cropped of the RH side of the rover recording the journey on and off the leading edge of the sands

Some great new RMI images looking over the dunes to the terrain beyond, on sol 1181.

Awesome!!! Can you do for SOL 1176? There is an awesome disturbed area...I stitched together, but my skills really well, not the best.
