No. Because of the shading of the contours, it is easy to identify
each contour line, they do not need to be distinct.

Perhaps I wasn't very clear in my OP. I know I can label the contour
lines WITHIN the plot. That's NOT what I want. (The reason is that the
plot I want to make gets then transformed into a ring). What I want is
a separate legend with the contour values.
