Default MER Backyard astronomy...

I'm wondering if there's any chance of the two rovers doing a spot of
"backyard" astronomy.

If I recall correctly, the resolution of the cameras is approxiamate to
20/20 human vision - I'd like to see if the two moons of Mars, Phobos &
Deimos, are visible to the rovers. Night, Evening or Day... apparent size,
rate of motion, etc etc...

CHeers,
Richard
