The Spirit rover imaged the El Dorado dune field many times in her Gusev explorations in order to detect the changes caused
by wind. This page provides a list of observations of the area taken from Home Plate. These mosaics span approximately 30°.

Images taken after drives can be tricky, as shown by this mosaic. Limited knowledge of Spirit's final tilt after the drive caused this El Dorado image to aim slightly high. Luckily, the view still provides a useful look at the upper portion of Husband Hill.

On this particular sol there was a small dust storm between the acquisition of the left image and the right image. In this calibrated mosaic, the foreground is adjusted to be consistent across the two images, causing the contrast in the El Dorado feature to be evident. The airborne dust is more evident in the left image than in the right (See previous El Dorado images for comparison).
