Looking at the HazCam thumbs for sol 2170, I believe it could have been a very good day on Mars smile.gif Link #18? smile.gif

Not so sure, that looks like a shallow hole. Too shallow.

They would have been just as tough for the as-planned drilling techniques when the rover landed. ( I asked that very question of the engineer who has wrangled the FED stuff )

A beautiful panorama on the foothills of Mount Sharp taken on sol 2166. It's part of a 360° panorama but all pictures are not yet arrived.



And three cropped versions of that panorama:

Beautiful, neo56.

Too bad the raw images are posted un-Debayered. I tried various ways to Debayer the mastcam images, but without success, and I don't have much time to explore other avenues. I was wondering if someone could find a way to automate the process and post the raw Debayed images somewhere so that the less proficient of us in image manipulation could assemble them.

Spot the Difference: Dust / fines being displaced by LIBS, fines and drill cuttings (tailings) dispersed by the wind.
An animated GIF assembled and roughly aligned from a pair of right side mast camera images featuring the same patch of ground in front of the rover ~24 hours apart (sols 2170 & 2171)
I believe there are 4 named targets in this frame:-
1) The drill target "Inverness".
2) A ChemCam (LIBS) target "Black Isle", a grey, raised, nodular feature just above the drill hole.
3) A ChemCam (LIBS) target "Grange", a white patch, just right of the drill hole.
4) A Micro Image target called "Pentland" consisting of large veins, just below the drill hole.

On an intuitive level the failure to drill does not surprise. The four prior attempts show increasing toughness with ridge elevation. If one of the criteria for defining the three members of the ridge was the apparent susceptibility to erosion, which I believe I have seen mentioned elsewhere, Stoer would seem more comfortably aligned to the Blunts Point Member and Duluth rather than the upper Pettigrove Point Member.

If you have OpenCV2 and Python the following fragment will interpolate a Bayer JPEG:

CODE
import cv2
i = cv2.imread("2169MR0116860040105687C00_DXXX.jpg")
i2 = cv2.cvtColor(cv2.cvtColor(i, cv2.COLOR_RGB2GRAY), cv2.COLOR_BAYER_BG2BGR)
cv2.imwrite("color.png", i2)

This thread discussed deBayering.

Using command line gmic is very simple and it works pretty well, as discussed in this post.

That could be easily scripted, identifying the Bayered images with the "C" identifier.

Charobob,

Here is my process for DeBayerin'....

Install GIMP 2.1.0

Open all Debayered files using 'Open as layers' and selecting all images you want to convert.

Switch Mode to RGB

Open 'G'Mic-QT' filter interface under Filters menu

Under Repair, select 'Bayer reconstruction'...experiment with different values to get the result you want. ( I use 8, 8, 6 ) ( No preview so you have to commit to see results )

This will give you a color image where there was black and white.

I then select the next layer and 'Repeat last filter' command [Ctrl+F]...for all the images you want to convert.

...this is the only tedious part but it shouldn't take too long. I'm sure its also possible to set up a batch process that would execute the filter on all the images you need.

Hope that helps.

There's a bit of a hangup in getting new images, but by now we should have moved again. The plan is to drive to Lake Orcadie, where drill tests were done 100 sols ago or so.

There may not be any new images for a while
https://mars.nasa.gov/msl/mission/mars-rove...we-want-to-help

"Besides transmitting data recorded in its memory, the rover can transmit "real-time" data when it links to a relay orbiter or Deep Space Network antenna. These real-time data are transmitting normally, and include various details about the rover's status. Engineers are expanding the details the rover transmits in these real-time data to better diagnose the issue. Because the amount of data coming down is limited, it might take some time for the engineering team to diagnose the problem."
