The wide exposure variations once again defeated MS ICE on the sol 1950 post drive L-NavCams. I managed to salvage this small section, hopefully it will assist in narrowing down the location until the full version is posted.

Don't give up Paul. Maybe try a different stitching software.

Sol 1950 Navcam panoramic. The visibility is so good we can nearly touch the mountains of Gale crater rim !

Beautifully crafted panorama Damia smile.gif I do hope that one day I can learn how to use some different software... Thankfully there is always lots of inspiration in this forum smile.gif

I have sometimes found that I can encourage ICE to work by doing some preliminary exposure adjustment to better match adjacent frames.

I did try that with this batch, maybe I overdid the lightening of the darker images... More practice needed smile.gif

Sol 1950 Mastcam34 driving direction pan. Looks like some new features are visibles here.

Damia's panorama in circular projection - rover tracks are visible at lower left, on the edge of the dark-floored depression.

Postcard from Mars: with the particularly low atmospheric opacity these days, we have a crystal-clear view on the distant rim of Gale crater. What a vista!
This is a section of the sol 1950 NavCamR panorama with an extended sky.

A stupendous view indeed. It would be a particularly good one on which to mark the whole route travelled so far. I'm especially enjoying the reminders of earlier parts of the journey, such as the reappearance of the little hill to the east I used to call 'Dumgoyne' now seen from above whereas we were looking up at it from Yellowknife Bay.

Here it is! wink.gif I used the recent JPL Press Release as a reference.

Very nice Thomas smile.gif I'm so pleased they named some new features, particularly the large crater in the western rim wall, it's long been a landmark for me to decide where the rover was pointing. I hope they continue to release the names of the vales, gorges and Mesa's etc in the months and years ahead, it makes it so much more enjoyable to follow along and the share the mission with others.

Meanwhile on Mars: sol 1955: 5 frame RMI mosaic of 'Bloodstone Hill' (roughly assembled in MS ICE), I guess there could be more images, but this is all they had when I processed these

Well, you might try a "suture" - a small image created from the edges of adjacent images, manually matching scale and exposure.

This roughly re-creates the "identify 3 match points" that was common in old camera stitch software.

Thanks. I'll see if I can find out more about that 'suture' process smile.gif
EDIT : No drive on sol 1957, but the rover took another NavCam 360, so I have deleted the roughly stitched pan I posted earlier as it's the same as the one posted on 1950

The other suggestion, see if you can dig up a copy of Canon's Photostitch, circa 2003
that had the incredibly useful ability to set manually forced match points.

I've got the .iso somewhere....

One of the telephoto RMI mosaics from sol 1959, roughly assembled in MS ICE with a little pre stitch processing on some of the frames. The 1959 mission update states that some of these long distance mosaics were checking various steep slopes to look for evidence of grain motion downhill.
