Radar Scope Image
The poor resolution of early radar scope images may be seen in this scope photograph of a mission near Munich. The city and a nearby lake stand out clearly. Ridges and mountains show up less clearly. Smaller towns and structures (typical military targets) were almost entirely invisible with this navigation and targeting method.
