Pete's polarization sequence consists of frames AS12-48- 7172 to 7188.

The procedures Pete followed in taking these photos is described on checklist page 10. Basically, he took sets of three photos, each of the three photos in a set with a different setting of the polarization filter. He moved to his right and changed f-stop settings after each set of three pictures, but turned to show the same scene.

Frame 7182 was taken toward the south.

Frame 7186 was taken from several feet farther right and toward the southeast.
