More sol 2 navcams, (2D & 3D) looking towards the mountain this time.

Beautiful!
Looking to the picture I still can't get an idea of how big that mountain is. It and the dune field look (to me) much closer than they really are and only after you realize how far they are you can try to think on their real sizes.

I understand we're probably five km or more from the near edge of the dune field ...

Just 2km, oDoug.

I think now that the stretching is different than MER. Normally on MER, the brightest pixel in the image goes to 255 and the darkest to 0. On this image, there's no white in the image proper (there is some in the first row).


I wonder if that white row is what is throwing off auto-stretching, assuming something like that is used for these web images? If so, it should be excluded beforehand. I don't recollect the MER images having that top white row.

Re-lurking.

MER's have white columns at the left and right side.. The MER and the Curiosity Navcams are clearly orientated 90deg differently to one another. The saturation bleed in MER is up/down - but Curiosity it's left/right.

Personally, I'm glad these images aren't overstretched, i.e. white and dark areas clipped too much. In fact, they don't appear to be clipped at all. Perhaps what's bothering you is the overall darkness of the scene and that probably has more to do with what I mentioned here.

Fiewww, I'm done with this pan. It was pretty because of control points on the rover deck, and this is not a good thing (shifting between frames, more important that with the MER Mastcam). Right Navcam, some data are missing, but the view is great smile.gif. The "raw jpeg" are way more cleaner than the MER one, it's a pleasure to work with this.



Edith : Thomas, very good work with the mountains rim identification smile.gif They will need some names now ! And an orientation table, like those we can find on some point of view when you have a good landscape.

I think we disagree a bit on the presentation of the raws, ugordan. For those who pipe the latest images directly into their photoshop setups, and applying a contrast and brightness enhancement is an automated part of the process, the raws are great. For the average Joes out there with a moderate interest in the program, I'm thinking that they're all a bit bemused and wondering why we landed at such a dark, murky spot on Mars.

Y'know, just sayin'...

Ant, that's an awesome pan. It reminds me of a tank with the turret and machine guns on deck. Martians should be afraid, very afraid.

Really great pan, Ant! I'm really going to enjoy the vistas from this place, I think.

Hope you don't mind, I just threw some quick coloring in there just to get a feel for what it will look like.

May I ask what you used to stitch?


Cool! I don't mind at all. smile.gif

I use Autopano Pro Giga and PTgui.

She is formidable isn't she. I just hope that none of those pebbles thrown by the martians during landing jammed any of the machine guns...

The dirt clods seen in the MastCam pre-deploy seem to match what we see in the wonderbread sandwich boxes on the deck pan... hopefully all is clear
