Still a sol 3 image here... but newly downlinked. I really like this view of the structure of the mound.

Oh that is wonderful. It's amazing how obvious the unconformity between the lower mound and upper mound is from this distance.

I so, so, so miss having an auto-downloader for this mission's images...

Best autodownloader sofar (until my next version:-)) is to use the DownloadThemAll plugin of firefox on my full images list.

I know, wrong thread:-)

Gosh the new sol 3 mastcams are impressive. Here are a couple of them - all I've done is applied a linear stretch:

It looks to me like some of the canyon-like terrain near a potential drive route, running up through the upper part of that last frame, and perhaps continuing into the upper mound level at the far upper left. blink.gif

With a bit of messing (contrast, sharpen, stretch vertically) about the different layers and structures around the base of Mt Sharp really jump out...

Good grief... blink.gif

With the missing frames now down, here's the complete 360 pan of the horizon, stitched and blended, full-resolution, uncompressed (29420x1283, 14.1mb):

Now we need Mt. Sharp...

Oh very nice. I've taken your panorama and puttered around with it to try to bring out more detail on those lovely buttes and mesas.

Full size here.

That brings the details of the stratifications into much clearer focus, yes. Using Photoshop's levels calibration tool and curiosity as a base for calibrating the black, gray, and white values here's a white balanced version of the whole base of Mt. Sharp. Oh my, there's some interesting stuff up there...

The middle distance also looks good in this. Here I did a stretch and then made a circular version - north not quite at the top, but nearly. Several features can be matched with the HiRISE image.

What scientists call "lovely mesas" rover drivers call them "potentially rover killing hazards". smile.gif Seriously, that area you are looking at will not be under our wheels for quite some time.

Stu, I was going to write a post saying "isn't it great that we won't need to use Philovision here?". After seeing your image, I thought maybe a warning would do:

Warning: This image is presented in Philovision. Although you may find this view shocking, the actual Martian topography is not this extreme. Common side effects from viewing this image may include feeling giddy or lightheaded, and may also include damage to your lower jaw. Do not drive a motor vehicle or operate heavy machinery while viewing this image.

The views of Mt. Sharp are like geologist porn. Unless that's all airfall volcanics and dunes/cross bedding, there's almost guaranteed to be interesting stuff in there.

Wow!
