Distant ChemCam view of Vera Rubin Ridge, Curiosity sol 1741
ChemCam's remote micro-imager (RMI) can be used like a ship captain's telescope to sight distant targets at high resolution. This outcrop was about 80 meters away from the rover when it took the set of 5 RMI photos on sol 1741 (28 Jun 2017).
