A320 Weather Radar

More of a curiosity than a problem - the rendering of the weather radar varies depending on whether it is set to manual vs. automatic for a given tilt setting.  Is there a reason or mechanic behind this?

 

(Frankly, I think the "manual" looks better!)

 

Examples:

 

Automatic:

Manual:

...and a nice comparison as the update sweeps across after changing the setting:

I believe that it's because in AUTO mode the weather radar is scanning multiple altitudes with high beam and low beam which is then combined into one picture giving a less accurate picture rendering by painting larger area. In MANUAL mode you are directing single beam with the tilt selected which should give a bit more accurate view with some graininess as well.
