It will seems still the sixth scoop...

"We received good data from this first solid sample," said SAM Principal Investigator Paul Mahaffy of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Md. "We have a lot of data analysis to do, and we are planning to get additional samples of Rocknest material to add confidence about what we learn."

Very deep relief.

Nice comparison. But the ground well away from the landing plume also changes between the three frames - check out the far upper left corner. Could it be that the image processing isn't identical between the three frames? Perhaps the contrast is higher in the earlier frames, which makes the plume more apparent?

The Sun was possible for the sol 6 is lower to a surface. Therefore the relief seems more contrastly.

FredK's point is that things nowhere near the plume are also changing color during the animation (and they wont have done so) - so there's a problem with the correlation of the images. You're not comparing like with like.

Could lead to another sol or two of delay.

371 images (so far!), 21144 control points and many, many hours of processing time on my 5 year old computer.

Holy wow!! blink.gif Does this include all the MR images from this pan that have been downlinked so far? Are there more thumbnails down that indicate that there are other areas yet to be filled in?

Another question: There's a noticeable boundary in the panorama toward the right edge, where it's clear that the images were taken at very different times of day. Is there a reason you didn't choose to place that boundary at the edge of the panorama? I don't see a correspondingly jarring one on the left side of the pan.

(That is *not* a critique. I'm thankful you spent the time and effort to assemble this.)

Fantastic, James - I'll be spending the next "wee while" wandering around here.

...though my very first zoom-in landed unerringly on the Rocknest Seal, seen here basking by a small crater...

Yes, that is (just about, as of a couple of days ago) all that have been downlinked so far. And yes, there are loads more thumbnails, so there is much more to come. blink.gif smile.gif

I have not adjusted the postition of the wrap boundary at all, doing anything with this much data is a click into the unknown. It is essentially centred on the first image taken. There are a number of boundaries where images are taken at very different times which made the matching a bit of a headache at times! I will use this version to refine my next. This was mainly a first attempt to see it I could actually handle this much data (success!) there will be more refinements as more data comes in.

BTW, for those zooming in, I have noticed the black dots/line across the middle. I think this is a bug/limitation in Enblend with very large images. I may try to complile a newer version, I'm using the old version that comes with Hugin for OSX. Failing that I need to find a way of editing it out (or find or write a new blender)

Did one too and added some sky rolleyes.gif

Big version here - Beware its about 15 MB because of the png compression used.

The Sol 78 pan is also pretty nice - especially the crazy stone on the left side ... I wonder if they manually changed the focus for the left part.
