This series of images was obtained by the Super Resolution Channel (SRC) (left and centre of the panel) and by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC, right of the panel) on board ESA’s Mars Express. The images were gathered on 28 July 2008 (orbit 5870), at a distance of 351 km from the moon’s centre. The two SRC images show a resolution of 3.2 m/pixel, while the HRSC one has a resolution of 14 m/pixel.
The left SRC image is raw (shown as it has been collected), while the centre SRC one has been corrected for mirror distortion. The right image is a portion of the HRSC image taken using the nadir channel and showing the same portion of the surface imaged by SRC. The latter shows significantly more detail than the HRSC nadir image.
