Yeah, that's very nice!
As you already said, the radiometrically calibrated images are just what we tried to achieve with our anti-vignetting efforts, and it's routinely done by the rover team. Unfortunately, these MRD images are only available up to sol 370 or so. So the recent images aren't. I will post something on the conversion of these '.img' images during the next couple of days.
They contain 12 bit data and are thus much better than the 8 bit jpegs. I've got another (partial) panorama to offer. It's from Sol 111, and, in my opinion, still one of the best MER images.


Full resolution (400k)

The complete pan will follow soon.

As a follow up from my earlier question - I noticed that the MER\Pancam Data Processing User's Guide (here
lists reverse look up tables for converting the 8bit images to 12 bit. Is there something that's missing in the data that prevents folks doing this themselves?

That's it Tman! I've been wondering when you were going for those earlier sols, especially these showing West Spur, AND the rim in tremendous detail.

Euh, would you mind doing the other eye too?  tongue.gif

It was always in my mind - more precisely, it is always in my mind, because the pan isn't finished yet I guess smile.gif today, I was so fascinated about this frame quality that I was too fast ready with it...

Sadly there is a left frame thats still fragmentary: http://anserver1.eprsl.wustl.edu/navigator...e&prodView=prod

Hi,

I finally managed to complete the Sol 111 panorama, using the radiometrically calibrated images.

These images are only available up to sols 365 (Spirit) and 360 (Oppy). So it'd have to be images of one of these sols. If it's a Navcam pan it should not take too long to get it done. Which sol would you like to have? I hope I can do it this weekend.

Thanks, Michael, that's great. I think the sol 312 Navcam images of Spirit leaving West Spur will make a cool panorama. Have fun with it!

Thank you Michael, very nice!

It seems the quality of the Navcams was really best around the time on West Spur... was it only because of clean air? I can't believe it hardly. When comes the same season for Spirit again (in sols?)

Wow, Michael. That is an absolutely perfect stitch! The one thing that jumps out at me right away is that the slope of West Spur is at the same angle as the dip of the crude layers making up the hill. I wonder how close that is to the true dip of the rocks. That's the sort of info NASA needs to figure out the geological structure of the Columbia Hills.

Thanks again, Michael smile.gif
