Mastcam-Z zoom/focus mechanism design
The barrel of the Mastcam-Z instrument will be different from Curiosity's Mastcam. Mastcam-Z contains a zoom mechanism with two lens groups that will move inside a rotating barrel in order to zoom in and out over a range of at least 4:1. This design was current as of July, 2015.
