Curiosity deck panorama at Stoer
Curiosity used its Mastcam to take a 360-degree self-portrait from the top of Vera Rubin ridge, at the successful Stoer drill site, on sol 2136 (9 August 2018). The rover usually uses its arm-mounted MAHLI camera for self-portraits, but is constrained from using MAHLI much during the dust storm. Because it used its mast-mounted camera, we can see the MAHLI instrument on the turret in this view, but we can't see the rover's "head" or "neck" (the mast) on which the Mastcam is mounted.
