Kinda like this?

Yes. Now do http://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl-raw-images/ms...0025E1_DXXX.jpg -- it's harder.

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


Clearly I was wrong about the last bit. But more important: Great detective work - smile.gif Thanks to all for following this up.

I prefer to waiting for the full version of these few missing frames wink.gif.

Very nice!
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?

Thanks smile.gif Just stereographic projection and some movement in the preview window. Ah - I nearly forgot that - I did fill in some sky too wink.gif

[Edit]: Maybe we should move all the sol84 MAHLI buzz to a new thread - it clutters things up a bit - no?

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.
I agree now that we are seeing the turret reflected in chemcam. I hadn't realized how wide a field was being reflected in the mirror, so we can see the turret even though chemcam isn't pointed directly at it.

Can someone figure out what bit of the rover we're seeing reflected in one of the L navcam lens covers?
Yes. It's near one corner of the turret. Here's a comparison of the mahli image (reflected) with the new ML thumbnail (white circles):

BTW, the ML image was taken almost simultaneously with the mahli images of the RSM!

And a new self portrait on sol 85!

Shifted a little sideways relative to the background I notice. Going for 3D?

If public outreach is a goal, it might be nice a version of the self-portrait with all the parts labeled. There is a bunch of things seen in the front of the rover shown in the full-resolution versions that I have never seen in the diagram or where so small on that diagram that they really could not be made out. What are all those things sticking out of the front? I am sure that there are plenty who would like to know.

Playing around with the pano file and Gimp to do a wide angle shot of the rover.

Needs work but boy, just... beautiful...

And have to say a HUGE "thank you" to the MSL team for taking and sharing the pictures with us.

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.

I can't thank the whole MSSS and MSL team enough for sharing the images with us and making this possible. I apologize for releasing the one's I put together to soon. I will be sure to hold off in the future and add appropiete image credits as well on any future work. I encourage everyone to do the same.

Can't wait for the 3D view. It's going to be quite a challange to stitch it up, headache free. I expect some projections will work better than others in stereo.

On another topic, isn't it remarkable how similar in colour the top surface of the HGA appears to the Martian soil? That could be relevant to the colour discussion in the other thread. But in the pre-launch views I've seen, eg:
http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA14131
http://photojournal.jpl.nasa.gov/catalog/PIA13308
the colour looks much lighter. Maybe the HGA was covered in a different material before launch?
