Spirit "Husband Hill Summit" Panorama (sols 583-586)
The panorama consists of 653 separate images in 6 different Pancam filters, and covers all of the rover deck and the full 360 degrees of surface rocks and soils that were visible to the Pancams from this position. This is the first time the team has been able to image the entire rover deck and visible surface from the same position. Stitching together of all the images took significant effort because of the large changes in resolution and parallax across the scene. The image is an approximate true color rendering using Pancam's 750nm, 530nm, and 480nm filters for the surface, and the 600nm, 530nm,and 480nm filters for the rover deck. Image-to-image seams have been eliminated from the sky portion of the mosaic to better simulate the vista a person standing on mars would see.
