A little something I put together whilst waiting for the Australian Grand Prix - this is two sections ( a 4x4 and a 4x3 ) of the full Panorama taken at Larrys Leap. I'm hoping to be able to do the section looking into Ten.Val next week.

Not better I think, nope. A very pleasing mosaic djellison!
Great work!

Hi Doug,

I remember your saying that you use PTGui to create your panoramas. I downloaded the program last night and tried to creat a 2 x 2 mosaic (2 rows, 2 frames per row). Unfortunately, the resulting mosaic cut off the top half and right half of the original images.

Can you tell me what settings I should use for the pancam and navcam photos? That is, what focal length and lens size should I indicate. Do I have to set the dimensions of the final panorama?

Thanks in advance,
Aldo.

I know pancam has an effective focal length of 38 mm and a FOV of 16.8. Somewhere else I read 16.6 so I'm not exactly sure but I use 16.8 most of the time. Navcam is 45.
You should see the Pancam user guide, available via the Cornell site.

NIX, what do you mean with "Cornell site"?
There is a "Support/FAQ" site on the software page: http://www.ptgui.com/support.html Even there I've found a link to a german user who gives tips on his page.

Not sure I understand the problem - I just use 16.6 for pancam and 45 for Navcam - the other info ( sensor size, focal length etc ) are just ways to come to a degree value smile.gif

Cornell_one of the official sources for the info

The last link is a small document compared to the Mer/Pancam data processing user's guide but the necessary info is there.

Oh that way rolleyes.gif I misunderstood one or two posts above. I already thought NASA/JPL etc. use PTGui too for their unequaled Mars panos. blink.gif

I've already known this links, anyhow thank you.

wow doug. It looks like your 2 image color is working nicely.

I am amazed at how you get the colors to match so well. Time to read more on photoshop.

Someday mabey i'll get close to dougs level of mastery but for now I am but a lowely aprentice. (that spells bad and dosent have a spell check on his computer) biggrin.gif
