CometWatch – 2 August
Rosetta navigation camera (NAVCAM) image taken on 2 August 2014.
While the full frame version remains at 1024 x 1024 pixels, the window size for the interpolated version has been reduced to 160 x 160 pixels to fit the growing nucleus in. Consequently, the factor for scaling up and interpolation has been reduced to 5 (originally 10). The most prominent "pixel pair artefacts" observed in previous images have been cleaned.
We also show today for comparison both the crop of the interpolated and non-interpolated versions.
