Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing: (a) the uncorrected raw image of Venus;

Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing:  (b) the errors introduced by the camera of the spacecraft have been taken out and the contrast of the image has been increased 1.5 times;

Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing: (c) the contrast is further increased 3.5 times;

Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing: (d) global shading has been removed to present more even illumination over the whole of the planet, and the contrast has also been further increased;

Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing: (e) a further step in increasing contrast

Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing: (f)  images processed through high-pass filters to emphasize small-size cloud details.

Fig. B-10. This series of images shows how cloud structure can be enhanced by computer processing:  (g) images processed through high-pass filters to emphasize small-size cloud details.
