Wind gust on Sol 1953

The MER Analyst's Notebook 23rd release contains the impressive wind gust from sol 1953 that we saw and discussed here: http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&p=142917

After processing it has still a lot noises and it is difficult (for me) to get better out the dust from the gust in the air without producing these noises and it's also difficult to keep the original look by tinkering with coloring. However, if you do not expect too much, it has more details than the raw images.

Thanks for posting that, Tman. It is very good work. I remember the event well. It was the one that appeared to be a direct hit on Spirit. We had some debate as to whether it was a dust devil or a straight-line wind event. After seeing it much better in your enhanced, calibrated images, I continue to lean toward interpreting it as a DD. But it is still not obvious, one way or the other, to me.
