We apply the local angle domain migration method using one-way wave equations to study the influence of different propagator (with/without WKBJ correction) and different acquisition aperture on the image amplitude. An example of a point scatterer is used to demonstrate the concept and methods in a c(z) media. The results indicate that the propagator and acquisition aperture both influence the imaging amplitude, however aperture correction has much stronger effect on image amplitude than the
