Zooming in on a polar plot?


Is it possible to zoom in on a polar plot, e.g. have Matplotlib fill the page with only the part of the plot with theta from 0° to 120°? You can’t zoom the plot with the mouse in the GUI window, so I was wondering if there is a different way, like with transformations somehow? I didn’t find anything in the documentation.

Of course I could simply clip the PDF, but then the color bar would also be clipped, so I’d prefer Matplotlib to do the clipping/zooming. I’ve never really used polar plots before, so I don’t know very well how to tweak them.
