Equator to Pole
The upper right corner of this image lies at 1° N, just above Mercury's equator, whereas the lower center-left portion is at about 83° S, just 7° from Mercury's south pole. Unusual impact craters Berkel and Derain are seen in the upper right, and the extensive bright ejecta and rays of Debussy dominate much of the middle of the view. The image is not map projected but has north approximately toward the top.
