Apparent positions of a model planet on a circular 80° inclined orbit with r = 1 AU around α Cen A in a typical coronagraphic intensity (left) and polarisation frame (right) at ten-day intervals. The brightness of the planet signalwith respect to α Cen A is exaggerated by a factor of 104 for the intensity and 103 for the polarisation. The relative brightness of the point for different phases is according to the model presented in Fig. 1.
