Dawn HAMO Gallery
The gallery below contains processed versions of the daily public release images from the third orbital altitude mapping phase, the High Altitude Mapping Orbit (HAMO), distributed on the JPL Photojournal. In HAMO, Dawn orbited at approximately 1,470km (915mi) above Ceres, capturing 1024x1024 pixel images with a spacial resolution of 140m (450ft) per pixel. Each image in this gallery has been processed with an algorithm I have been developing with the intent to reliably enlarge the images to approximate a 200% enlargement, or as if Dawn were orbiting twice as close to Ceres, offering a spacial resolution of 72m (225ft). In reality, these do not offer such a dramatic increase in resolution. However, the algorithm is typically successful at drawing out details that are typically too fine to notice in the original images.
