Quotes

"We stuck the arm out inin front of the rover and used the arm to shoot enough images to cover the entire rover and all the terrain around it" Ravine told HuffPost Science in an email
...In those places, he said, "we'll purposely slow down and pick a very careful path and limit the amount we drive, and also do wheel imaging at a higher frequency to see if we're actually incurring more damage."
Jacob Schaffner, electronics engineer and the designer of ECAM at MSSS said, "TAGCAMS is a demanding application, but one which the ECAM system has proven well-suited for, and all in a package that weighs less than 3 kilograms. We're proud to be part of this exciting mission."
...Mars, where water-ice clouds and hazes develop during this season," said camera team member Mark Lemmon of Texas A&M University, College Station. "The two Martian moons were the main targets that night, but we chose a time when one of the moons was near Ceres and Vesta in the sky."
