Comparison of SXT images of Mercury with the pre-launch point
response function. The image on the left is a disk convolved with
the Gaussian fit calculated by Martens et al; the middle image
is the sum of 44 images taken with the Dagwood filter (omitting
four that were in the S coronal hole); the right image is the
model rebinned to match. The Mercury data have the corona in the
background, of course.
