Quotes

...of all the work we did for our MSL Mastcams, while addressing some of their limitations," said Mike Ravine, Advanced Projects Manager at MSSS.   "We felt that the most cost-effective improvement was to add a zoom to provide better stereo capability.  The zoom will deliver the same optical quality as the fixed-focal-length systems on MSL, while giving the flexibility to trade resolution against coverage and data volume."
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."
