         The Opportunity rover acquired this mosaic of rock outcrop on Sol 1645 (Sep. 9, 2008).  This mosaic shows an area of "cap rock" along the top of Cape Verde, at Victoria Crater, taken during Opportunity's egress from the crater.   Due to Opportunity's dusty front sapphire windows, the right third of the three pointings used to form this mosaic were subframed out to minimize darkening.  A bit of Bottomless Bay can be seen at the top right of the image.  The mosaic's field of view is roughly 25 degrees across and 16 degrees high.
         This mosaic was created using Pancam's 753-nm, 535-nm, and 432-nm filters. Two versions are offered here at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color stretch to bring out subtle color differences in the scene.
