Guide to Magellan Image
Figure 7-14. Left-looking stereo
images of the crater De Lalande: (a) Cycle 1 image at a 44-deg
incidence angle; (b) Cycle 3 image at a 24-deg incidence angle. The
eastern crater wall is much brighter in the Cycle 3 image because the
wall is closer to the normal of the radar wavefront than it is in the
Cycle 1 image.
