Using the GRAS-016 Takahashi telescope on the Global-Rent-a-Scope Network, I captured the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity on its way out of the earth-moon system. At the time the first image was taken the rover was at a distance of 161,877 km from earth. Each image is a 60 second exposure. GRAS-016 is located in Nerpio, Spain.
