The German aerospace center, DLR, has released this picture showing Mars moons Phobos and Deimos:DLR says it is the first time the two moons have been captured in one image at high resolution. The picture was taken on Nov. 5 with the High-Resolution Stereo Camera on Mars Express. Mars Express was about 11,800 km from Phobos, the larger object on the right, DLR says. That necessitated the use of the camera's Super Resolution Channel, which adds a 0.5 deg. field-of-view lens to quadruple resolution.The picture on the right underwent processing to eliminate some distortions.
