Comparison of Curiosity Camera Fields of View
Date: 2 Aug 2012
This set of images compares test images taken by four cameras on NASA's Curiosity rover at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory before launch. The image on the left shows a view from one of the black-and-white Navigation Cameras on the mast of Curiosity, looking down at the ground. The Navigation Cameras have a wider field of view (about 45 degrees) than the Mast Cameras (15 and 5 degrees) seen in the center of the figure, and Mars Hand Lens Imager (23 degrees), whose picture of the rock target is on the right. The outlines of the Mastcam and MAHLI images are shown superimposed on the Navcam image.
