This view is a super-resolution view of some the area behind Viking lander 1. It uses images taken between 1976 and 1978. A large pile of rocks can be seen, as well as a small crater on the horizon. I did this work in 2004. One of my goals is to rework some of these images again. At the time, I stacked the images in an 8-bit format. By using a 16-bit format, I can minimize data loss as the image goes from through various stages of processing (given the size of the images and the limited memory/speed of the computer I was using at the time, working with 16-bit data was prohibitive).
