Sol 4688, April 2, 2017. Opportunity’s Navcams take in a field of view three times wider and taller than its Pancams do. While the Pancams are good for scouting, and the Hazcams cover a few feet immediately in front of the rover, the Navcams excel at medium-range driving.
The two-frame Navcam composite above gives a clear view of the ground surface ahead of the rover, including small irregularities and rocky ledges half-hidden from view because Opportunity is approaching them from upslope. For a larger view, click the image.
