Image Caption: STS026-048-061 Equatorial Pacific Front
02 October 1988, 3.3S, 92.1W

Internal waves (A) converging upon the equatorial front.
This photograph was taken using a Hasselblad equipped with a
50 mm lens. The photograph on the following page shows the
area of the front in the upper right corner (B) photographed
at the same time using a 250 mm lens. The value of the two
views photographed together is much greater than either of
them separately - the 50 mm view presents contextual
information over a large area while the 250 mm view shows
the detailed structure associated with the front and
internal waves.
