Rover Astronomy from Mars
First view of the Earth from the Martian surface...Orion constellation...partial solar eclipses. Fun stuff.

Disappointing pictures, tho
I thought the rovers had high-quality digital COLOR cameras? Why don't they use them ?

Because these astronomy photos were not part of the main mission. They're just a quick & fun little side project. They save the big guns for the rocks & landscape. (high-res photos take more time & energy and the rovers are limited in both)
