New pancam images are up...

http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...ncam/2008-06-23

...but boy, they're a mess! If you hate lens flare don't go and look, it's everywhere, obliterating detail on the cliffs... and I think there are a few "sunrise" images too but they're very small...

What do you mean? The pancams of the cliff are exposed for the shadows, so the highlights are going to be overexposed, and with the dust-covered protective windows in sunlight, there is going to be a loss of contrast. Nothing that can't be processed out of the images.

Not optimum, but hardly a mess.

After four+ years, my jaw still hangs open at what we're getting from these rovers!

Great QT, mike!

Just to be clear, the newest of the new batch of pancams are from sol 1562 (apart from the solar filter shots), when we were much farther from the cliff than we are now. They were experimenting with exposures to try bring out detail in the shadows, which lead to severe bleeding from the sunlit areas. I have to say, I actually thought some of these heavily-bleeded images looked kind of cool, like this one.

Oh god, I can see Certain People claiming these are martian stromatolites or vegetation or something, and were deliberately airbrushed out of photos taken later... rolleyes.gif

Looks like we'll need HDR imaging to get good results overall.

Yeah that overexposed stuff is from sol 1562 (seven sols ago). A few images came down from sol 1569, but all sky. Looks like we need to be patient.

P.S. Thanks for the comments on the QTVR. All I actually did was was export the frames from MMB and load the .pts file into PTGui. Whole process took a few minutes. Okay, I adjusted the image brightnesses first, which took a little longer.

... and I don't know about anyone else, but I'd be a bit worried about Oppy driving underneath something that looks this unstable...
