The past few days I've noticed that the MI images Oppy is sending back are 64x64 pixel images of (apparently) noise, or a super-subsampled view of something. The Hazcam images are odd, too.
Is there a problem with the MI?

Well there is no name for the strange MI images in the database, but the similar looking hazcams are down as 'photon transfer' observations. And they do look a lot like the Spirit images when she did the photon transfer calibration a while ago.
Nothing to worry about.

Ah, so that would be a CCD-calibration/checkout procedure. Good.
