It’s a while ago now, but I did some pre-Messenger research for a two part paper that was published in the Journal in the 1990’s. I found that it was possible to correlate some of the albedo features seen through the telescope on Mercury with the images teturned from the Mariner mission to the planet. Bright spots seen at the eyepiece do agree with the more prominant rayed craters on the planet.
