Curiosity's Cap 1B phase was completed yesterday with the successful first drive, so now we're going into "Intermission." Dan Limonadi's guest post on the Society blog has great explanations of what all these phases mean.
QUOTE
There is an “intermission” that the science team will have between CAP 1B and CAP 2. The intermission will include initial drives away from the landing site, more in-depth ChemCam and Mastcam characterization and science observations, and the first SAM atmospheric science experiment. The total length of this period depends on how long the science team wants to drive before carrying on with sample chain checkout activities. The key flavor difference of intermission is that science is more in the driver’s seat and not trying to squeeze in between higher priority engineering checkout activities that have priority during CAP 1 and 2. Our current plan is to complete a significant fraction of our drive to Glenelg during intermission
Keep discussion of sol 9-16 imaging in the relevant thread -- not all of those full-frame Mastcam images are down yet.

Here's my attempt at debayering. I cooked it pretty hard to see how much detail I could get out. The patches of green and purple are not real, those come from JPEG artifacts in the source images.

Looks like a vintage postcard smile.gif Really stunning.

Look at the little sand drifts in the near horizon on this one! http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl-raw-images/ms...3000C0_DXXX.jpg

Yes Emily. And I'm wondering if Curiosity's team is planning to open an Instagram account to the rover smile.gif.

These are amazing pictures... Fred B - absolutely stunning! It's going to be incredible driving around that topography.

But first - Glenelg. I hope we'll see another drive soon. I will be posting route maps from time to time, but not after every drive. In particular I'm not able to do so from Aug. 31st to Sept. 16th, but look for something after that.

Phil

Wow, I think we can see there is nothing wrong with the focus of Mastcam100. Those lossless frames are really something, too bad they are not released losslessly.

Hi to everybody,

This is my first try at converting the color information on the right MastCam images. Altough is not as good as I would like (don't know if it's due to JPEG compression or because I don't know how to do it better) it clearly shows the color of the soil and the rocks. The ventifacts are pretty nice rolleyes.gif

Comments and advice are welcome!

Greetings!

That looks like the best yet!

So what is the deal with the bayered images? Some mastcam images are de-bayered on Mars (or back home) and some are not? The algorithm for Mars scenes should be easy--just assume a shade of red & you're good. smile.gif

Sure would be nice if Adobe Lightroom had a "MASTCAM RAW" plugin. Of course, jpegging them beforehand is sub-optimal.

The ones that are returned in original, Bayered form are lossless which is A Good Thing.
