Fig. 1.


First row: VLT/SPHERE/ZIMPOL images of Psyche obtained at five different epochs (ordered by rotation phase) and deconvolved with the Mistral algorithm and a parametric PSF with a Moffat shape (Sect. 2). Second row: corresponding shape model projections. Third row: corresponding projections using the shape model of Shepard et al. (2017). The arrow shows the direction of the rotation axis. Last row: images with contrast and size enhanced to highlight the albedo variegation. The two topographic regions that we consider as real features are also indicated.
