All the possible systematic and random errors which could introduce differential brightness of the optical emissions between the eastern and the western part of the solar corona have been discussed. Since east-west inequalities have already been detected in all the optical emissions of the corona, it is necessary to do so before we proceed to additional research in the direction of modelling and interpreting this effect. The aspect that east-west inequalities are consistent to a real physical phenomenon is very attractive but there are several possibilities we have to search before we come to the point to accept it.
