Plus, where's the shadow of the camera? You can clearly see that there's a shadow behind the rover's wheel closest to the camera indicating a light source behind the camera perspective, but then in the sky you can see the sun clearly in the opposite direction. I'm so confused...
The camera was attached. The arm was just photoshopped out to make the picture look better.

The pictures were taken over a period of a couple hours.

On a more serious note, here's a picture I stumbled across of Orion in development.

I'll have to say the first and last.

But I did help a lot with covering retirement stuff for the main NASA forum.

I'm so glad they didn't leave her hooked up to that effing Tundra.
