Yes, that's a great and evocative image jamescanvin!

I must say the dreaded dune on the edge looks wholly unimpressive from here, it barely came above the threads of Oppy's wheels.

And here is the whole panorama.

I did a little trick in order to get the whole 360º view. There is a missing image on either the left and right channels so I had to mix one from the right eye on this left eye panorama. I wasn't sure about the results but autostitch is a really amasing piece of software.

Thanks for the pan, Tesheiner. Looking towards Verde there's a little "shelf" which had been visible from atop Verde. Navcam shows it really nicely in 3D:

They should use rendered scenes like that as wallpaper backdrops to all their press conferences!

A quick and dirty stitched and colourised view from Opportunity.
What a view!
Enjoy

Has everyone managed to come up with flat-field corrections for the horribly dusty optics? Or, dare I say it, are these streak-free pancam mosaics indicative of a major cleaning of those optics?

otherDoug, I just used the navcam pics for the image above and then a little Photoshop trickery to clean it up.
I don't know if others agree though, the navcam pics do look a little cleaner....may be my imagination though rolleyes.gif
Hopefully others are working on a 'real' fix for the dust problem.

I don't think there has been any improvement in the left pancam - same dust model used here.

I'm almost growing to like the slightly low-contrast romantic haze the dust has brought to the 'picture' smile.gif

Astro0's view of Oppy's current location from Capo Verde seems to show that above and below the white layer are layers which are more resistant to erosion than the white layer. It seems that the undisturbed dune deposits below the white layer and the broken blocks of dune deposits above the white layer stand up to wind erosion much better than the buried "soil" deposits represented by the white layer.

I hope that RAT holes will be drilled in all three layers so that the reasons why the white layer is less resistant than the other two layers will become clear.

Hmm... I'd say just the opposite, Paul. I see the white layer forming a small ledge where Oppy is currently looking at it. The only way a rock layer can form a ledge is if it is *more* resistant to erosion than the layer below it.
