How do you like your dust?

Here's a Mars set from Monday night, for the core of the rapidly globalising storm. Poor old Oppy is right in the middle of the frame!

Only a bit of Sinus Meridani is visible clearly in the middle, and the storm is encroaching on the south polar cap.

I've attached a gif rocking two IR frames, showing the texture and shadows at the top of the billowing dust clouds, especially near the sunset terminator at right. It's a sort of 'orange peel' effect, as described by Anthony Wesley.

Hi Philip, and thanks - do you mean the IR image? The frames presented are IR (>642nm), R, G & B, and combined RGB. There's no luminance (which would, as you imply, be blurrier than each of R, G & B). IR is typically sharper than red or any of the shorter wavelengths.
