CNSA published high-resolution images of Mars captured by the Tianwen 1 planetary probe. These images include 2 panchromatic images and 1 color image. The panchromatic images were taken by the high-resolution camera at a distance of 330 to 350 km above the surface of Mars, with a resolution of about 0.7 m per pixel. Martian landforms such as small craters, mountain ridges and dunes are clearly visible. It is estimated that the diameter of the largest impact crater in the images is around 620 meters. The color image is of the Red Planet's North Pole region taken by the medium-resolution camera.
