Unbelievable. Where's the swear jar ...

TTT

P.S. I've been wondering if it would be possible, without unreasonable effort, to use Mastcam images of the "missing" sections of the arm and turret, resized, reoriented, reprojected, and whatever else, to complete the self-portrait. I'm not sure the result would be a better picture; just curious if it could be done.

Edit: this was in response to Cargo Cult's version, one back from KrisK's.

The upsidedown landscape reflected in the chemcam just cinches it for me....


... and in that upside down image we also see (presumably) the reflection of MAHLI. Now here's a question: When I peer hard at what I assume is the reflection of the MAHLI lens I can persuade myself I'm seeing something reflected in that too. Just a few pixels, and it's not clear what. Maybe I'm making it up. rolleyes.gif It's a bit of a mad idea but I'm sure if there's anything in it somebody here will sleuth it out.

Very dramatic. Here's a color-corrected smile.gif version of KrisK's composite, using the LR filter:

I'm glad everyone is enjoying the self-portrait. We worked all day yesterday doing the "official mosaic" of the thumbnails, and I expect we will do the same today on the full-res.

As a courtesy, it'd be nice if people could not broadly release these for a few days. If our mosaic turns out worse, then the better mosaic will win in the end. If you do release anyway, make sure you have the right image credits and be advised that I may be somewhat miffed at you. We've been working on this particular project since before landing and I feel like we are having to rush it to avoid being scooped.


ADMIN NOTE: The UMSF Admin team highly recommends that members use appropriate image credits. See the reference in the MSL FAQs.

Beautiful work, guys! Another signature image in space exploration. pancam.gif

Chemcam is not pointing towards mahli - if it was we'd be looking into the chemcam aperture on-axis. Instead chemcam is looking above mahli. So we're not seeing the mahli lens reflected. It looks like we're looking pretty close to on-axis into MC34, but I can't see any reflection there. Can someone figure out what bit of the rover we're seeing reflected in one of the L navcam lens covers?

I think the reflection of the turret is there right above the middle baffle/secondary mirror of the Chemcam. Would have to look at earlier Mastcam images of the arm and turret to recognise Mahli from that tiny reflection though.

Edit:Yes, it is there, with maybe half of Mahli's aperture visible too. I can't see how you could see anything out of its reflection though smile.gif

I concur - it's the turret we're seeing.

Wow wow ! Some EXCELLENT work there smile.gif. And a big thanks to the MSSS and JPL team to manage acquiring such a wonderfull panoramic !

So, from my side (and after a great Halloween party…), here is my take :



By clicking on the picture, you will be brought on an "interactive" version of the panorama. Enjoy smile.gif.

"Official" thumbnail mosaic:

The full image will probably look the same, only bigger.

Very exciting.

What's going on with the streaks in the shots towards tail/RTG? Overexposure?

Well, here is my version. I used the darker surface images as a base aligning the others to.

Very nice! It's too bad nobody has figured out how to remove the shutter smear off the RTG, but it gives us a competitive advantage. smile.gif

How did you get Mount Sharp that close to the rover? Did it just project that way or did you do something special? If you used hugin what projection did you use?

You left out the partial frames, which you need to fill those gaps.
