Drive-direction extension

         This mosaic was acquired by the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity on Sol 2344 (August 28, 2010).  While doing work on Cambridge Bay with the IDD (Instrument Deployment Device) instruments, Pancam acquired additional coverage in the drive direction using color filters. The rim of Endeavour Crater is visible on the horizon.
        Pancam's 753nm, 535nm, and 432nm filters were used in making this mosaic.  Two versions are provided at full resolution: an approximate true color rendering, and a false color rendering which enhances the subtle color differences in the scene. The view spans about 30°.
