Agriculture and wind power generators (in the middle) at Görmin, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany. The rotor blades appear unfocused or even invisible due to their rotation. The image is a RGB composite from two passes. The first two images obtained in pass 2 provide polarisations HH (red) and HV (green). Fast moving cars on the motorway A20 hence appear in yellow (red+green) – aside the motorway and defocused. Another polarisation (VV) joins the image in the blue channel. Fast moving cars from pass 1 hence appear in blue – again defocused and aside the motorway. Employing a dedicated technique, it is even possible to focus moving cars in SAR images and to re-place them to their original position in the image.
