.....Considering the nastiness going on at another Mars forum right now, this place is a haven of civility and enlightenment.....

.....I still would like to see a full 360 colour pan from here, prior to moving to the northeast and getting a partial colour pan of the north-east basin from a better vantage point. Then, off to Home Plate! .......

>Damn right. I'm surprised sometimes at people's interest too, even from amateur-astronomers. I could have an observatory in Chile right now but yet still be strapped at the computer looking at and learning about Mars. Ah well..

>Give me a few days to throw in the first full 360 of the summit smile.gif however it could turn out a few weeks if Charlotte (my computer) agrees on throwing in the rover self-portrait from sol 586 which looks very nice (as preview). But it's up to Charlotte's ram unsure.gif


>Home Plate Panorama - Home Pan- tongue.gif should turn out great yes. Especially if the rocks are what we're looking for ohmy.gif It sure looks like a very neat playground down there!

It took me a while to parse that title - my brain just never expected to see those words together in the same sentence... tongue.gif
But now it almost seems like the title of a children's book: "Spirit, The Robot Mountain Goat."

And I vote awesome on the view!

I think "Robot Mountain Goat" was a description that Steve Squyres used when they were doing the slope tests before going into Endurance (it's mentioned in his book or somewhere). Except then the rover was actually a crater-goat, now she is really a mountain-goat. It just seemed a natural description smile.gif It would make a good children's book, actually.

I share the general frustration that so many people seem to have lost interest in the rover's adventures, but obviously it's not the people here.

...and this is the 3x stretch version, with an enhancement of the distant DD and Gusev rim and plain details.

Whoa!!! Is that a dust deviel or a stitching artifact in those images. blink.gif ohmy.gif
About 1/3 of the way in from the right. It shows up in the original stitch
only it's blurrier....

Per this data, it's a 27x3 panorama i.e. 360 x 45 fov, like "The Mother of all Panoramas".

Should mean 620, right? Definitely it clears off smile.gif The Everest pan comes with the entire rim...

Love your 3x stretch version - seems to reveal every rock, crater and hump!

It is a DD, also clearly visible in the original pan - would say an highly sharp one.

Dilo,

Your pan of Post #17 -- way cool. As I have said before, Mars looks just like we hoped it would . . . and of course the effect of being on a peak is irreplaceable . . .

Strange...

Today (sol 623) looks like a driving day:

Actually, the navcam and hazcam pictures are already available but the site/drive IDs are the same as for the previous position (AERF) and the front haz images taken today "after-drive" and on sol 619 (previous movement) looks equal.

There is motion but not seemingly of the actual wheels, i.e as if the rover just settled a little.

Sol 623 at 1206 is the time I have for RHAZ images

My first image post after vacation. Dilo did something similar earlier as well. Here I took Tesheiner's pan from sol 619, did some fiddling to remove steps from the horizon, and made a polar-type pan (with exaggerated relief near the horizon) from it.
