Walfy - I really like that slowly moving gif - the fast ones are a bit irritating to watch for very long.

Here is my version of the Odyssey Crater mosaic from way back on sol 2683 that has just come down.

nice indeed, where did the extra (six or so total?) frames come from? by definition there are only 2 (left/right) to work with, unless the MER team has begun tailoring their imaging sequences for flickergifs..

AFAIK, they are interpolated from a single L/R pair. Google for "Piku-piku".

I'm thinking that without the mini-tes, it might be difficult to distinguish them. Now the loss of the MTES starts to hurt.


I've been wondering just how much the pancam filters could make up for the mini tes loss.

In the Journal Of Geophysical Research in 2003 in the paper "Mars Exploration Rover Athena Panoramic Camera (Pancam) Investigation" it says that the pancam multispectral imaging can identify iron bearing phases such as ferric sulfates, ferric carbonates or iron bearing clays. The researchers seem to be really focussed on iron compounds.

In an other paper on mini tes, I read they had exellent descernability of minerals within the silcate and carbonate groups.

I just wonder how much senitivity the pancam has for finding non ferric carbonates.

I don't have access to that paper at the moment, but I assume the pancam is using shortpass filers to act as a crude imaging spectrometer (or reflectometer) in this instance. Distinguishing non-ferric carbonates might be difficult (zinc from aluminium, say) simply because these aren't transition metal compounds with nice colours in visible- or far red light.

Very beautiful pictures James and Stu, these rocks are really awesome, and so different that what Oppy has seen yet.
