Mastcam-colorized ChemCam views of Vera Rubin Ridge, sol 1745
The Remote Micro Imager, part of the ChemCam instrument, imaged the outcrops of Vera Rubin Ridge on sol 1745 (4 July 2017). The left image was taken by the MastCam 100mm camera at 13:27 local time. The right images were processed using the technique of pansharpening, i.e. the fusion of higher-resolution RMI mosaics with the lower-resolution color MastCam 100mm image, providing colors. The RMI images were taken at 14:32 (bottom) and 14:55 (top) local time.
