Perseverance has landed!

Post by stranger »

We are still far away from traffic jams on Mars surface, but we have again two rovers on Mars!
Hope Chinese rover will join this company soon :D
Nice work, NASA! Landing on Jezero's crater floor with hazardous terrain was not just repeating Curiosity's success.

Has anyone seen non colour adjusted images?

Don't know about "non colour adjusted" but NASA call this a raw image:

I presume some post-processing has gone on, but I ain't an expert.

Probably already been seen by most of you, but just in case. A full video of the landing. Quite impressive.

Hi-res pictures available for free public access are TIFF, not RAW, so me think some color adjustment was done in any case during conversion of original RAW images. If you are interesting in REAL color of martian landscapes and sky, there is famous high-res panorama with parts of rover in field of view. You can try to readjust color balance using plates for color calibration - there are several such plates on rover in FOV. I'm using as reference point ring around gnomon (neutral grey) - this part of rover seems collects less martian dust. Result is quite predictable - no any conspirancy with blue skies and green martian valleys :D Martian sky is yellow with pinkish tint due to suspended fine dust.
