For 21 Al.1 images on July 4, 1997 (01:41:34 to 10:39:22)
the left panel shows the pattern of the leak correction
SFC images found by LEAK_SUB. One end of each pair is the
sun-center coordinates for the data image; the other is
the SFC chosen. Sometimes multiple hits on a given SFC
occur. The right panel shows the pinhole brightness (mean
of 49 pixels centered on (170,108).
There is a rather large variation of pinhole brightness.
Is this due to different illumination at different pointing
positions, or is it due to measurement errors (high clouds,
missed timing, volcanic dust, high-flying birds) in the SFCs?
HSH 22-Nov-97
p.d. the pinhole brightnesses are plotted at the locations
of the data images.
