Curiosity used her MAHLI arm-mounted camera to take this photo of the top of her camera mast on sol 32 (September 8, 2012). The photo was shot through the MAHLI dust cover, which was, in fact, covered with dust during the landing. This version of the image has been rotated and had its contrast stretched to reveal more color.
