I estimated the depth to be 1-2 meters. This was nothing more then a few second glance at the mosaic, so this is probably temporary, until there is an official, more exact estimate.--Planetary 08:47, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

There's an approx true color Pancam panorama in the works, I guess we'll find out when that's taken, processed and released. MER-C 12:21, 7 August 2006 (UTC)


Can someone with some bandwidth upload a suitably cropped version of this image (warning: 87 MB!) for use in the article? Unfortunately I don't have the bandwidth and the next lower sized image is about a 1:16 shrink. MER-C 12:05, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

Why not just use the smaller one (True color), and on the image's page link to the big one? (The 44 megabyte approximately true color) I have a "thing" against false colour images, and wonder what the point is of downloading it if it's not even reality.--Planetary 17:46, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

That would be going from an one hour download to a half hour download and the small image suffers from being too low resolution (a 1:12 shrink). I'm looking for something about 1MB in size. As for false colour vs true colour, the false colour image has much more colour contrast and the true colour is kind of bland. MER-C 08:16, 18 September 2006 (UTC)

What exactly is the problem with the current page as it is? Theres an image of the crater from far away, and another from right on the rim. We can always link to the coloured versions anyway, and Beagle is only notable for being so close to Victoria. We can always do it like this page anyway. Note the link to the giant version at the bottom. Still don't see why false colour is even being discussed. I'd rather have reality then flashiness. Wikipedia should stay accurate. --Planetary 23:27, 18 September 2006 (UTC)
I'll do that then. MER-C 08:50, 19 September 2006 (UTC)


I just added some information that I think should at least increase the article to a start class, but I think I incorrectly cited the information. If you can't access the source rom the icon, just go into the edit page, copy the url, and figure out how to correctly cite it. I am still new here! Owllord97 14:14, 19 November 2013 (UTC)
